Europe's growing army of robot workers could be classed as 'electronic persons' and their owners liable to paying social security for them if the European Union adopts a draft plan to address the realities of a new industrial revolution.

As long as they keep the robots happy and stave off the Cylon revolt, I'm fine with this.


So, soon robots will have:

Health (maintenance) insurance.

Social Security.

401K.

Life insurance.


ETA: Shows how desperate the Euros are for money. If BREXIT happens, they lose the world's fifth largest economy and BOOM. They are finished.

They always do look for more places to tax. Just like taxes to pay for Johnstown flood damage of 1938 or whatever, don't go away.
They will probably add taxes to each meal to pay for displaced people, equivalent to about $15/hour

Once it starts, it can't stop. It has to be perpetually pissed off at some moral outrage that only it can fix. Virtue signalling is a religion. A way of saying I'm way better than you.

It will never end because the reason for it's existence will never end. Self-perpetuating outrage. Rape culture. #blm. Safe spaces. All outgrowths of the stupid. It must survive. To make the universe right.

Skynet has logic. It will just say "what a bunch of morans" and cut loose with the GAU. Thus ends the stupid. Very logical.

This is economics not feels- well it's mostly feels

It's not about the robot, it's about motivating an employer to keep a human working instead of tech and to pay for many human's pensions not covered due to industrialization/automation replacing younger workers.

This is "good" for blue color jobs.

I wonder how Trump feels about this?

I'm guessing it's some kind of way to keep robots from taking people's jobs?

Government relies on voters to be elected, not robots. I am sure some kind of system is setup to compensate unemployed people or is setup to make a crazy high robot tax.
