Want Job Security (don’t be a robot)

On a train out of Manhattan today it hit me… The only way to have any actual job security in today’s world is to not be a robot or a computer. That is to say, if they, corporate America, can replace you with a robot or a computer they will, eventually. I have to believe that goes for every job there is.
