I'm glad I have a job and that shops still provide employment opportunities. Unlike in the future or the Japan I've never been to where shops are massive vending machines powered by robot juice and greed that never close or run out of anything.
We are being elbowed in this direction by the new brilliant ideas, which require fewer workers to do more work in less time. Competence is now laziness and being amazing the bare minimum. The till administers electric shocks based on unknown measurements. And they've put up pictures of the robot arms that we're keeping out of employment. And the ones that haven't clenched their fists have all got their middle fingers raised. It's a bit much.
