Wages of workers could be hurt by more robotics and AI
The rich elites of the cities are get richer, while the wages of the middle class in the Midwest stagnate. Many economists point at mechanization and robotics as an important culprit of this trend.
Inequality may not diminish by itself, on the contrary. In the future, it is unclear if it will get better. The poor may be hurt by always more international competition, robotics, and soon AI (artificial intelligence).
On top of it, should carbon regulations burden the lower middle class and the poor even more? It can’t go on like that. The poor can’t be sacrificed for the planet! We can’t crank up the green transition and demolish the poor. They certainly won’t accept it!
