I heard a presentation a few years back suggesting that low interest rates coupled with more regulation and higher minimum wage would surely result
in more automation. We are there now. The government is regulating the lower level employee right out of the job equation.
There is an article in today's WSJ about this but I am unable to link so here is a similar article from 2015.
Automation is finding a home in both law and accounting offices. Robots retrieve or pick items from warehouse shelves.
The automated fast food joint is literally around the corner.
I stress the importance of becoming certified in an accounting discipline. Now it is more important than ever as the lower level jobs disappear.
