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.
