1. Which of the following is NOT a reason that critics are concerned about the rapidly increasing automation of jobs? Even people who find their jobs boring or unpleasant still feel a sense of purpose in being a contributing member of society through their labor. Although people sometimes complain about things at work, most workers love their jobs and their coworkers, and would hate to have more paid time off to focus on their personal lives and projects. As the gap grows between the many whose labor has been automated and the few whose work can’t (yet) be automated, the irreplaceable workers might start seeing the masses as a useless underclass, undeserving of equal social and political rights. As automation deprives increasing numbers of people of the ability to contribute to society and earn a living through their labor, society is unlikely to provide these unemployed masses with the resources they need to live comfortable, happy lives. Correct! Wrong!
