We Are The Expendables!

Our corporate culture is so ambitious that it would actually replace humans with robots if it saved cost and increased profitability. So, let’s ponder just manufacturing transitioning from low wage worker to robot that annualized in a way to drive Human cost down and the efficiency frontier up.  If I’m company A, a powerful, large company, publicly traded; a capital expenditure that is not humans is good.  What I require as CEO or BOD is “first to market”.  My advantage is speed to implement, driving cost down in relation to my competitors.  If I win, huge speculative stock binge. But, competition in America is as formidable as any enemy in any battlefield. At best, only quarters will pass before the rest of the market segment dumps everything into the same cyborg futures. But what of the worker just replaced by, “Annie”??

Some of them will be graciously allowed to demote to a call center or tech line to, holy shit, repair mis-firing “Annie’s” who have fallen off the corporate delivery goal.  The CEO’s know this but can’t be reached for comment because they just started the back nine at a course that is piloting robot caddies to improve profitability.  My question is, if you drive the middle and lower class out of payroll, who will buy your product or service derived by this ingenious notion?   Wait, I just realized, “Annie” has a slut sister named, “Alexis” who is a robot sex doll-American laid off worker ok with the transition…
