Changing the job market with robots
Jun 23, 2014
The job market has opened up with a wide range of positions available to help run the necessary jobs with industrial robots. Industrial robots help to create jobs as it is important to make sure there are technicians that can ensure their proper running and maintenance.
The job market has been like a roller coaster over the past decade, going uphill or downhill right along with the global economy. However, there is one change in the job market that has been at work for forty years – robotic automation. Robots are starting to now change the landscape of the job market and of economies around the world.
Fifty years ago, a manufacturing job was all a worker needed to support their family. However, as factories began outsourcing parts of their production, or their entire plants, to different countries, people had to start looking elsewhere for work. By the 2000s, manufacturing was no longer an industry that was popular for new workers entering the job market after high school or college. Robotics changed all that. While robots changed the job market by filling gaps for manufacturers by providing systems that could perform jobs that had a shortage of workers, they also gave workers the opportunity to learn new marketable skills, making industrial manufacturing a more sought after profession again.
Robots are changing the job market in another way as well. Because robotic automation saves companies money, they are able to keep their production and other services, like customer service, in their home countries, with their companies, instead of outsourcing. This means that more jobs are available for human workers in that country.
Overall, robots are changing the job market in a positive way for human workers and their employers and will continue to do so for many years.
