    prevent people from replacing workers with automation?  

    If workers become expensive enough, it makes sense to invest that money, instead, into automation.  There's generally a tipping point, when automation, with a higher front end investment but generally more reliability and accuracty and far cheaper operational costs, will be more financially advantageous than hiring workers.

      in this way. But you and your little friends just keep on flailing and vomiting up strawmen at every turn, ok? Maybe someday you'll get somewhere...

      It is time to #Occupy Media.
