Thanks for the Amen, brother! I started when I was 18, I'm 55 now. My dad was in the business for 38 years. I've seen alot over the years. I think it just drives the engineers crazy that they can't fix something. They have to try for their own sanity.
One thing is for certain. They can automate assembly lines, install self checkouts, Automate almost everything but unless they can get a robot to come to a house and make a service call, Our jobs are secure.
