Upgrading your job skills is critical because your other alternative is obsolescence.
Nearly half of retail workers are at risk of losing their jobs to robots and other automation technology, according to a new report.
Several years ago, I had people argue me down saying I was a conspiracy theorists. Of course, that WASN’T the case. I had seen the ‘signs’ of technology taking over warehousing and some service industry jobs. I provided tangible proof. Yet, I was literally ‘shouted down’ as if I were an idiot. What can the naysayers say now?
If you are not in the technology industry, be aware of the changing employment industry tides. There will always be a place for your talents. It’s just that those places are changing and you MUST adapt. How? By learning how technology will impact your industry. You may need to learn a new skill, which isn’t a bad idea. If not, you will become as obsolete as the last iPhone version. Again, obsolescence isn’t a good career option.
UPDATE!!! It’s has come to past that those protesting for a higher minimum wage got what they wanted. Now, the game-changers are coming to past.
