The Rise of the Machines

We know that jobs are being eliminated by automation. That's been happening for centuries, and especially since the Industrial Revolution. After some fear about job loss, we've always managed to build new ways to work and earn money. But this times different, and Kurzgesagt is here to explain how.

So what happens when machines do all the jobs? We'll need to find things for people to do, and a way for people to survive without a paycheck. As it is now, the people profiting from automation are those who own the machines. Yes, it would be great if everyone could just work part-time, but only if they could make a living doing it.
