Whenever we talk about raising the minimum wage, some supply-sider always shoots back that if we raise wages, employers will automate low-wage workers out of a livelihood. So on the latest episode of The Other Washington, we ask the questions: Are the robots coming for our jobs? And if so, is that necessarily a bad thing?
Our guests include renowned tech visionary (but not a futurist) Esther Dyson, Institute for the Future research director Bradley Kreit, and Hointer co-founder Nadia Shouraboura, who takes us on a tour of what the future of brick-and-mortar retail might look like in a highly automated age (hint: different jobs, not fewer).
