Losing jobs

Re: Technology to revolutionise Kiwis' shopping experience, January 20 story.

Well, this article proves it. We humans are crazy! We place technology above our own humanity! What about all the people employed in these shops who will no longer have a job? Is this really progress?

All those people who now use the self checkout machines in supermarkets, do you realise that these machines are also taking away jobs? Think about it.
