Well, like you say, they'll displace workers but won't replace them if they train for new jobs. Some of those jobs will be created by the automation industry itself.
Robots don't drop out of trees. They have to be designed, built, programed, and tested. They also have to be warehoused, shipped, and marketed. That new industry, and all it entails, will have to be insured from start to finish as well.
In other words, robots aren't going to magically appear and kick workers off their jobs.
I think both industry, and the government should invest in retraining workers as many can't afford training.
Unfortunately, I'm not seeing a whole lot of cooperation or enthusiasm in that regard from either.
In fact, the Government is actually making it harder for people that weren't born into wealth to get an education or training by rolling back regulations related to loans for higher education.
That will directly affect working class families that need to train for newly created higher tech jobs.
We have to prepare for the future, and we're not doing that because the people that are only interested in quick profits now are calling the shots.
Robots wouldn't have to be as big a threat as they are currently viewed to be.

It takes awhile to feel the effects, but the predatory lending practices of the past are making a comeback.

I speak to young people going to college. They are getting loans. Unfortunately not all colleges are truly teaching.
