I have long said that if we wouldn’t have deported all of our manual labor jobs (while importing brown people to do the jobs that couldn’t be deported), the jobs would still be gone by now as we would have had the economic incentive to further automate manual labor jobs.
Well, China, where all the manual labor is still being done, is going ahead and automating, despite the fact that labor there is still very cheap (though nowhere near as cheap as it was when Bill Clinton signed all those “free trade” bills).
This will be 100% industry standard in 5 years. Possibly sooner.
Which is yet another reason we need more no-skill brown people flooding into our country – someone is going to have to do maintenance work on all of these robots!
An online retailer has opened the largest ‘smart warehouse’ in China manned by 60 cutting-edge robots.
These Wifi-equipped, self-charging machines are responsible for moving goods in the warehouse.
They send the goods to human workers, who then arrange the products to be packed and posted to customers around the world.
Occupying 3,000 square metres (0.7 acres), the warehouse is situated in Huiyang, south China’s Guangdong Province, and is owned by T-mall, a part of the Alibaba, the world’s online retailer.
The automated delivery boys started working at the warehouse in July, and have helped the warehouse increase its output by threefold, according to Quicktron, the manufacturer of the robots.
The machine has been named Zhu Que, or the Vermilion Bird, which is a spirit creature in the Chinese mythology.
SPIRIT CREATURE WAREHOUSE ROBOTS.
The robots receive instructions via Wifi signals. They would then find the goods and move them to the designated drop-off points for human workers to pick up.
Each of the machines is fitted with laser detection which prevents them from bumping into each other.
Once fully charges, the robot could work eight hours non-stop.
Measuring 90cm (35 inches) long, 70cm (27 inches) wide and 30cm (12 inches) tall, Zhu Que can travel up to 1.5 metres (five feet) per second and carry a load as heavy as 600kg (1,322 pounds).
Quicktron said the robots have saved workers from running around the warehouse to find goods.
Traditionally, a worker could sort 1,500 products during a 7.5-hour shift after taking 27,924 steps; with the help of Zhu Que, the same worker could sort 3,000 products during the same period of time and only 2,563 steps need to be taken.
‘The robots need to collaborate with each other and work independently at the same time. They represent the highest level of China’s warehouse robots,’ said Cainiao Logistics, an Alibaba branch that manages the warehouse.
You Yuquan, a logistics expert from Cai Niao, said the robots could lift and rotate the shelves, which makes it easier for human workers to reach the goods.
Mr You also said that the company could store goods along all of the four sides of the shelves, which increases the available storage space.
According to Quicktron, the warehouse will recruit another 40 of these delivery robots.
So this is the direction everything is going in and it is going in that direction very fast.
These robots being used by Alibaba alone are going to cut hundreds of thousands of jobs in the US. With factories gone, warehouses are a big source of blue-collar work.
Trucking is the single biggest industry in the United States, and 3.5 million of those people – that’s over 1% of the entire population of the US – are drivers. Their jobs are all going to be gone in 5 years.
I don’t know how many taxi drivers there are – with Uber I doubt anyone has exact numbers – but they’re all gone too.
Many – if not most – service industry jobs are going to disappear very quickly as well. Robots that stock shelves are already viable, and most grocery stores already got rid of cashiers. Fast food places will soon be getting rid of cashiers – proof of concept for that already exists in the form of totally automated McDonald’s’ in several locations.
All in all, I think the estimate that by 2025, only half of the jobs in this country that existed in 2015 will still exist.
And yet we have these no-skill brown people marching in by the millions, with no one even taking the robot revolution into account (or our existing unemployment rate, for that matter).
The Alt-Right is the only political movement in America that is aware of and putting thought into the robot revolution, and I think this is a strength that needs to be pressed. Our movement should be about more than race – it should be something that offers real solutions to real problems. And there is a real opening for that – because, like I say, no one else is even thinking about it, let alone discussing it.
