Watching this reminds me of thje Charlie Chaplain movie on an assembly line. It also reminded me of the first auto mass production line. Using AI and automotive technology to erase jobs by improving process and reducing waste is what I call progress. People will move up the ladder to higher skilled position just as has been done in coal industry and car making. Only a luddite opposes reduction of menial work.

“His specialty was alfalfa, and he made a good thing out of not growing any. The government paid him well for every bushel of alfalfa he did not grow. The more alfalfa he did not grow, the more money the government gave him, and he spent every penny he didn't earn on new land to increase the amount of alfalfa he did not produce. Major Major's father worked without rest at not growing alfalfa. On long winter evenings he remained indoors and did not mend harness, and he sprang out of bed at the crack of noon every day just to make certain that the chores would not be done. He invested in land wisely and soon was not growing more alfalfa than any other man in the county. Neighbours sought him out for advice on all subjects, for he had made much money and was therefore wise. “As ye sow, so shall ye reap,” he counselled one and all, and everyone said “Amen.” ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22
