This is so true. I think as time moves on it will. Here in the US, there was once a time,and this was back when I was a kid and my mom was an assembler for a local electronics factory. People in the area at the time where I was growing up, hated the idea of robotics or any kind of automation, because many families then feared for the loss of jobs. These fears even resulted in down right threats against those who worked to help build any machine for fear that someone might get laid off.

Very true Nomad. Its a shame though that at the time people like my mom and godmother who worked on these assembly lines had to get death threats from fellow workers simply because these machines might replace the jobs of those family members. At least the thinking has changed, and is more welcomed now.
Heck my mom taught me how to solder and wire wrap. Grin
