RIA President Jeff Burnstein was interviewed on CNBC during Automate 2011 in Chicago last week. He discussed the impact robots have on jobs.
More success stories than ever exist of companies who have invested in automation and seen their business grow and prosper. One of the best stories is that of Marlin Steel Wire, who uses robots to succesfully compete with companies in China paying its workers 30 cents an hour. Drew Greenblatt, Marlin’s President, says thanks to robotics he has added jobs to handle the increased business and can pay his workers $30 per hour plus benefits.
