Samsung to make robots ‘cheaper than any human worker’

Samsung to make robots ‘cheaper than any human worker’

In the future, we will all be on benefits, while rich people use robots to make even MORE money.

That’s the dark future hinted at by Samsung’s new ‘big project’ – a plan to build robots cheaper even than the miserably underpaid humans who work in Chinese factories.

The project, in collaboration with South Korea’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, has been funded to the tune of 6.75 billion won – and aims to create factories which will undercut Chinese ones, according to The Register.

If the plan works, South Korea could pick up lucrative contracts assembling products such as new iPhones – currently made in huge Chinese factories.

If so, it marks a dark day for the future of human employment – as so far, many jobs have been protected simply because humans are cheaper than machines.
