every place that has "automated" the job of a grocery checkout clerk now employs people to watch the self checkout lanes which malfunction approximately every five seconds until a human walks over and waves a card in front of a scanner or punches something into a keypad
@AndrewYang Every repetitive job, no matter how fancy, will be automated by 2030. Today it is paralegals, diagnosticians and grocery checkout clerks, tomorrow it will be restaurant and factory workers, software developers and managers. There will be little left to do. We need UBI now.
