Into a jobless future

Here's a story that shines a light on one small corner of a future without jobs. The men and women currently driving the big dump trucks in the Alberta tar pits will soon be replaced by robo-trucks.

They're not the only ones of course. Eventually over-the-road drivers will be replaced too. And it's not just drivers. Pretty much the entirety of the paycheque economy is vulnerable, if not sooner, then later. Fast forward far enough, and it's not likely that there's going to be much demand for human labour.

What then?
