Technological progress has brought the productivity closer to its limit.

The reason
for this being that computers are now more ready to handle jobs that could only be
handled by human previously. That said, nowadays, as computers are able to
manipulate robots, lower-skilled level jobs are being replaced.
The first targets of the computer replacement movement would be the factory
workers. The jobs of at those factories are very repetitive and sometimes dangerous.
Therefore, robots can be easily programmed and managed by computers to perform
those simple tasks. They save the manufacturers the cost to train new workers, also
ensure that productivity is always at its best.
Another workforce that is directly affected by the advance of the computers is the
front-desk service. This service can be found at restaurants, hotels, or at the
airports. As of now, automatic receptions can be found at various airports and
hotels. Some restaurants in Japan are also applying the technology to improve the
efficiency at their places. This happens because machinated receptions are far less
prone to careless errors. It will save the overall costs due to the errors.
With those two workforces being replaced, the effects on the economies can be
tremendous. Traditionally, countries have a lot of factory workers. With the
computer replacing their jobs, the unemployment rate will be expected to be on the
rise as the technology advances. And computers are not all that perfect; while they
are not prone to human errors, they are prone to systematic errors. This, in fact, can
cost organizations affected by it big fortunes.
As computer technology advances, factory workers and receptionists are directly
affected. Computers are there to provide the services with better accuracy and
cheaper labor. However, while it is efficient, they are not perfect. Computers can
cause systematic errors, which are usually huge in scale. Furthermore, the job
replacement can certainly have some serious implication on the unemployment
rate.
