    Its inevitable that any time labor content can be removed, its viewed as a good thing. Difficult jobs do not require human participation. Lower costs is good for the bottom line. Its ironic too that those wishing to open more doors for "cheap labor" immigrants are likely inviting folks who's jobs are being engineered out. Some say there's a labor shortage now. What about when there's no labor requirement? No labor requirement sends the working headcount towards zero. Some say the technology is difficult to develop, but what was difficult not so long ago is breathtakingly present now. As the jobs eventually disappear, what next?
