Opinion: Contrary to popular wisdom, automation is not a job killer in U.S. manufacturing - The Washington Post
I’ve explained why I don’t think the tariffs will help, but I also reject the pervasive argument that automation is just too powerful a job-killing force such that there’s no point in trying to help our factory sector. In fact, according to an important new paper by economist Susan N. Houseman, the argument that “labor-displacing technology,” i.e., robots/AI/etc., has killed factory employment is not supported by the data.

We review these studies and conduct new analysis of manufacturing wage and benefit premiums and conclude that although the increase in outsourcing manufacturing work to staffing agencies has helped erode pay and job quality, there is still a substantial manufacturing pay premium.
