“Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed, and you get income tax, Social Security tax, all those things. If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level,” said, Bill Gates in an interview.

He claims if automation takes place over human activities, it should free up time allowing people to do a better job. He also condemned giving up the income tax, as that is a part of funding that level of human workers. The tax funds might come from the savings companies obtain from not having to pay and support human workers.

“People should be figuring it out. It is really bad if people overall have more fear about what innovation is going to do than they have enthusiasm. That means they won’t shape it for the positive things it can do,” said, Gates.
