Automation and the future of jobs...spells big trouble. Adding insult to injury, The Pandemic just sped the demise even faster...
2 years ago Sam’s Club closed 63 stores and left about 11,000 people out of a job.
Ten of the affected stores were turned into e-commerce distribution centers, and employees of those stores had the opportunity to reapply for positions at those locations, a Walmart official said at the time.
Fast forward to now…and I certainly don’t need to tell you what’s happening with jobs.
Let me repeat the important part:
Ten of the affected stores will be turned into e-commerce distribution centers…
“Oh…but why would Wal-Mart be closing stores?” you ask. “I thought they were super-successful and growing??”
‘Between 6 million to 7.5 million existing jobs are at risk of being replaced over the course of the next 10 years by some form of automation, according to a new study this week from by financial services firm Cornerstone Capital Group.
That represents at least 38% of the current retail work force, which consists of 16 million workers. Retail could actually lose a greater proportion of jobs to automation than manufacturing has, according to the study.’
They just have less of a need for people when they can AUTOMATE.
Sam’s Club doesn’t need to pay 11,000 workers. So they are getting rid of the them.
And before you start bitching about it being unfair, just know that it doesn’t matter…because they don’t care.
So if you think the ’40-year-career’ is going to take care of you…think again.
Automation and the Future of Jobs: They No Longer Need You
Here’s the deal, it’s only gonna get worse. Why do you think Sam’s Club is turning to ecommerce and the future of automation?
Simple. It’s cheaper.
You know this has been coming. It’s been creeping…and creeping…and creeping for years.
Oh sure, a percentage will be retrained and get new jobs. But that will benefit mostly younger workers (if it does at all).
What Do You Do?
The impact of automation on employment cannot be overstated.
Take yourself out of the job market. At the very least…partly. You really have no choice.
Start an ecommerce or affiliate marketing business and control your destiny.
And to the ignorant naysayers who grovel ‘that’s a scam’…you you better get your head outta' your posterior before you’re left holding it.
The struggle is real…and about to get realer.
Will you be left holding the bag (with nothing in it)??
