Could robots take your job? How automation is changing the future of work

by News Update

Canada currently has more than one million job vacancies and not enough workers to fill them.

Labour experts are saying that prolonged staffing shortages and the COVID-19 pandemic are making the case for more job automation.

In fact, a precursor to our automated future sits inconspicuously off Baldwin Street in Toronto’s busy Kensington Market. The RC Coffee Robo Cafe, which juts out slightly from the brick wall by the sidewalk, bills itself as Canada’s first robotic café.

As opposed to a vending-machine brew that dispenses coffee from hand-filled urns, a robotic barista makes each cup of coffee, espresso, latte and more by request, ready in just a few moments.

Global’s Anne Gaviola has the story.

I can’t wait for a robot to take my wife’s job of being a wife. Then I can then hit the off button.

We need 1 robot to just repeat the words ‘racist’ & ‘she experienced it differently’ while wearing shoe polish & we could replace the Prime Minister in a heartbeat.
