Change, Robots, and a more affordable Labour Pool

I keep hearing that people lose jobs because of advances in technology: shiny metal robots are replacing working class muscle and female allure. Change is everywhere so rapid that humans can’t keep up and pretty girls fall to the wayside; North American auto makers like GM lose market share to makers from Japan and  Korea. Piano builders move to China in a big factory where other people make all North America’s big name grands, like Canada’s Heinztman , that you still can buy here if you wait for it to be shipped to BC from where it’s manufactured in China.

And where is that steel made that the US wants to tariff since Canada and the US closed their mills decades ago?

And everyone knows where the US’ Apple, at one time the largest capitalised company in America, makes its products.

And has anyone ever seen those electronic products we used to think they made only here like televisions and stereo equipment. All those jobs were shipped to Asia before a lot of people were born.
