Robots Can Create Jobs and benefit American labor.
Robotic Industries Association    Ann Arbor, MI 48108
June 7, 2010 Fear of robots replacing workers is misplaced, as industrial robots can actually help companies compete by boosting quality and productivity. By enabling companies to turn out higher-quality and lower-cost goods to compete with those made in other nations, robots in factories can save and create more jobs than they eliminate. Robots also remove people from dangerous and boring jobs, freeing them up for higher-skilled, higher-paying positions.
