Smart Machines to Replace Millions of Middle Class Jobs by 2020

According to TechCrunch, CEOs are fooling themselves that millions of middle class jobs won’t be replaced by 2020. This isn’t such a fantasy if you consider how decades of simplified processes and automation have already eliminated many service industry jobs or contributed to decline in salaries, especially of those who were already on the low end of middle class. But if you couch this as being then problem of improvements in technology, then you follow the same sort of fallacious thinking that keeps society in an economic hole.

The technology is coming if we like it or not. The problem is if our work force has the willingness and capability to adapt to the changes technology brings with it.
