Robotic Assembly lines

Nothing new to us. Tireless, precision robots hard at work. No loo breaks. No complaints. 24/7 work. What do we get? Beautiful luxury cars ! When doing a job, robots can do many things faster than humans. Robots do not need to be paid, eat, drink, or go to the bathroom like people. They can do repetative work that is absolutely boring to people and they will not stop, slow down, or fall to sleep like a human.
