Here come the Vegas robots in Vegas…didn’t I blog about this a few months ago?
Automation and computers have replaced people in many jobs over the last few decades. Cashiers. Factory workers and film projectionists, to name a few.
Over the next 20 years, some 60 percent of Nevada’s service industry jobs are expected to be replaced. Casino servers, concierges, room-service attendants, drivers and more.
But will those jobs really be replaced by automation—kiosks, say, or even robots?
UNLV researcher Beth Wi says automation is already working well in some cities—but not all.
Remember…Vegas Strip casinos are owned by publicly traded companies and those companies need to keep showing higher profits. Once they’ve squeezed every penny out of guests they’ll eventually turn to eliminating labor that hasn’t already been eliminated. Then we’ll have robots running games and robots delivering your grandma drinks at the slot machines. Just a matter of time.
Numbers from :
There would $30M of dead money in 2019 thanks to Matthew Stafford's $50M signing bonus since a trade would likely occur prior to the NFL draft. That's $500,000 more than Stafford's 2019 salary cap number. There would also be a 2019 cap charge for finding Stafford's replacement. https://t.co/c1YG30xmkK
