At any given time in history, we've wanted more than we have. Automation doesn't create jobs, peoples needs and wants create them. Automation is just one way of satisfying many of those needs and wants with great efficiency. Yea, we'll pay less for people running errands or sweeping floors when we figure out how to get those same things accomplished with zero labor. Just like we pay less for hunters, gathers, bath attendants, potato pickers, and elevator drivers. That doesn't mean there are less jobs, it just means more of us are freed up to do the really important ones. The job no one else is doing is always available and it often offers great compensation.
