Hotels and Restaurants Expand Use of Automation

Robot bellhops were introduced to the public as a coming thing in 2014 when trials began. Now they and other automated technology are becoming normalized, as reported in a CBS Los Angeles TV segment.

As is often the case, the media doesn’t know how to handle the automation issue and the CBS pirce wanders all over […]

Silicon Valley Newspaper Floats Free Money Idea to Remedy Robot Job Loss

Sunday’s San Jose Mercury had a front-page article (graphic shown) about the possibility of instituting a universal basic income to remedy the huge job loss predicted from automation. As usual, nobody promoting the idea has any suggestion of how the government would finance the trillions of dollars annually required. Perhaps a start would be to […]

May Day: Democrat Hypocrisy Hits Zenith

The Big Lie of the Democrat Party is that it stands for the working American while also supporting open borders and unlimited immigration: both cannot be true because a surplus of labor always results in lowered wages. May Day is supposed to underline solidarity with worker rights and wages, but lately not so much.

It seems clear that […]

Immigrant Senders Dread a Trump Presidency

Immigrant-sending nations have a problem with Donald Trump and the possibility that pushing their unskilled persons and criminals into stupid-generous America may shrink. They are miffed that Obasma’s open borders could shut to a degree, leaving some with a decreased remittance haul of fewer billions of dollars. (The United States is the major remittance-sending country, […]

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Slams Omnibus Bill That Funds Obama’s Radical Immigration Wish List

Do Republican Congressional leaders think nobody will notice the monstrosity that the Congress has created in the omnibus federal spending legislation?

One element of the bill would effectively quadruple the number of H-2B foreign workers for blue-collar non-farm jobs that millions of Americans need. At a time when the labor force participation rate is only 62.5 percent […]

Add Sewing Robot to the Advanced Machines Being Developed for Human Worker Replacement

One of the toughest skills for automation engineers to crack is the amazing human hand with its unique dexterity — but it’s not for lack of trying.

Amazon’s highly automated warehouses have thousands of Kiva robots moving racks of merchandise around to human box packers — for now. The company is working to develop a machine […]

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Slams High Legal Immigration

It’s nice to know that Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) keeps busy trying to save America from excessive immigration. He gives well researched speeches on the Senate floor (available on his YouTube channel) on the subject and also publishes edifying press releases and the occasional longer piece to inform the Republican conference and the public.

Senator Sessions’ […]

Robots Move into Construction and Take Human Jobs

We see lots of photos of robots on factory floors, where the machines weld and assemble 24/7 with no coffee breaks. But construction workers shouldn’t think that their jobs are safe because they are outdoors and not as repetitious as some. New robots and techniques are being developed that are revolutionizing the construction process. One […]

Software Is Replacing Financial Workers in Large Corporations

This website has examined the expanded use of technology to deprive Americans of their jobs, and physical robots illustrate that workplace revolution very clearly. However, clever software also eliminates many workers, though not as visually. For example, tax software now performs the calculations that were earlier done by human tax preparation experts.

That transformation is occurring […]

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Connects Smart Machines and Immigration

Senator Sessions wrote an op-ed published on Friday in the Washington Post where he called for a sane approach regarding the number of immigrants America admits. He correctly noted that the changing workplace must be taken into account. When human employees are increasingly being replaced by robots, automation and computers, then the wrong idea of […]

Meet Sawyer the Robot, Baxter's More Precise Cousin

The company that created Baxter, the $25,000 robot designed to do manufacturing jobs 24/7, has come up with a new machine that is smaller and capable of finer movements. So while Baxter can pack boxes and other simple movements, Sawyer’s more delicate touch allows it to perform some aspects of electronics manufacturing, for example.

The company’s […]

Professor Warns H-1b Expansion Could End Tech Jobs for Americans

Rutgers Professor Hal Salzman was a standout witness in Tuesday’s Senate hearing because of his grasp of the facts and skill at explaining the danger to citizens’ employment from bad policies.

Senator Sessions questioned the professor on the subject of legislation:

SESSIONS: In an article that appeared in US News and World Report you wrote, “Guest workers […]
