Some have suggested – Hillary Clinton, The DNC, President Obama, Bernie Sanders, that it ought to be raised to $15.00 per hour, ouch, this will close car washes, retail stores, small businesses, fast food restaurants and it will cause companies to automate and ditch their labor costs all together – you think I am blowing smoke – Nope! Let me give you an example of where this is happening right now.
The idea that Mr. Trump wants to bring back thousands of jobs for blue-collar working American’s provides less incentive to globalize the world’s economy. Bringing back manufacturing jobs would bring our economy back to a pre-globalized world. Essentially this would create such an economic inequality among citizens to the point where some workers are working in a modern era, while others would exist in an economy similar to that of the 1940s and 50s. This case would prove that it would be harder to globalize in a world with very different economies. Bringing back manufacturing jobs would penalize the current free world trade that many can argue its numerous benefits. Donald J. Trump is and always has been in favor of free trade, so bringing back jobs to the United States would ultimately put a forever halt on globalization and innovating inside today’s world economy.
Manufacturing plants are frequently long aisles of nothing but robots, no human in sight. Beyond industrial robots that repeat actions, more intelligent robots loaded with sensors, cameras, and intelligent software are able to automate process using controllers to manage action. Use of microprocessors provides a measure of intelligent control over the activity of the robot based on input from the sensors and the cameras.
Robots can act as assistants for staff, as stand-alone workstation workers or as a complete virtual workforce, working from virtual desktops within a data center. Choosing the best fit configuration for your business is a critical component of a successful strategy and optimum long term results.
Analysts say that the use of robots has moved away from the large, expensive machines used for the most recent years in industries such as the automotive sector, to much more complicated robots that are more capable of completing more complex tasks. This enhances the competition inside the economy, basically providing a staple to go off of. Without scaling up to competition, companies can have severe, negative impacts as a result of not competing with industry innovation. According to Boston Consulting Group, investment into robots will rise 2-to-3 percent annually. Taking away one of the major staples to the manufacturing industry, and having blue-collar working people, would stop this annual growth and have an impact on the economy and competition.
