Even prior to the industrial revolution, those who owned the land or means of production became increasing rich from the work of others and held power over those who laboured as a result. It is a very different world now from the turn of the industrial revolution, not so much due to a technological change but a population one, and inequality in society is stronger than it has ever been. So what becomes of the majority, what will happen to the labour market when the owners of AI or automation technology need less and less workers, as the global population continues to expand? Jut like the industrial revolution, this isn’t a problem that needs fighting against, nor is it a problem that can be ignored, this needs legislating against to not reach catastrophic proportions, as population makes this a much more complex issue compared to the industrial revolution. Labour needs change with industrial growth, and some better method of looking after those who cannot work needs to be sought moving forward, as this will eventually become the majority.
