If you reduce unskilled and illegal immigration, there is much less to worry about.

But instead we continue to swell the ranks of the bottom rungs of the job market, lowering wages, increasing chronic unemployment and disincentivizing companies to invest in cost-saving technologies.

We are again reminded: there is no economic need for mass immigration, legal or otherwise. They have been albatross around the neck of the US economy for 50 years.

The country would be infinitely better off it had adopted an Australian-style points-based immigration system in 1965.

And let's be honest: the 'tech community' (an imaginary journalistic construct) doesn't give a damn about workers.

Here’s something Trump did. I don’t understand it, but I don’t realize that. Now I’ll signal my virtue by saying the opposite is true by reusing the original thoughts of others.

>Millions of workers around the world are at risk of losing their jobs to robots

Who cares? People will adapt. This same screaming about how some new technology will end the world is the same goddamned refrain throughout history. Everything will be fine. Just like the personal computer didn't ruin everyone's lives, neither will automation. It's only going to make things better.

Thanks to minimum wage laws who increase the cost of the labor and make it more cost effect to use robots.

Liberals- the enemy of the poor.

Damn straight. Minimum wage is the enemy of poor people. And rich people -- monocles aren’t cheap!

I know you are trying to be sarcastic, but its a simple economic fact that minimum wage hurts the poor.
