Robots Rejected: Humans Still Build the Best New Car You Can Buy

I felt this was an important topic as living, working, and going to school in and near Flint, let alone in Michigan, many people are worried that the automobile factory jobs are going away. In the past, our local economy survived on this industry and many people are afraid of technology replacing those jobs. When Honda and Toyota, who are both known for their efficiency and lean processes, both state that humans are still needed for production, then everyone should take notice.

Now of course, technology will in turn replace some jobs, but I found this article that explains the effects of this “replacement” or “redistribution” better than I can explain myself.
