I remember watching a movie recently which portrayed humans inventing machine robots who could think and putting them in charge. Later on the robots started thinking more innovation and subsequently started reproducing themselves en masse and took over the entire universe. this led to human end and extinction. That was sci-fi anyway.
Now, back to reality: Machines are actually taking over our jobs as employees of organisations. For instance in those days, virtually all banking processes were mannual. With the advent of the robot called ATM, tellers had less work to do, hence banks needed less tellers and so they had to lay off excess tellering staff.
Now we are fully entering the cashless economy. When this gets fully introduced in Nigeria, we expect more people to lose jobs.
2 banks in the last few days layed off a total of at least 600 employees. Where are we heading to?
This still brings us back to same fundamental question: Is technology a curse or a blessing? Or both? are the blessing being swallowed by the curses?
The problem is not because of technology. If it were technology, I expect everyone in China or Japan, Hong Kong to be jobless by now. I see the fault in Naija is in two places:
1. Poor organisational management, embezzlement etc
2. Failure to catch up with latest development. By point 2, I mean workers should update themselves so as to become more relevant as processes change. For instance if the bursary dept of an organisation is planning to computerise all their originally manual processes, any staff who fails to learn computers usage and acquire relevant skills as a matter of urgency may be left behind. I cant shout.

HAVE YOU NOT HEARD THAT SALARY IS SLAVERY.Our graduates need to start small businesses and grow them instead of using N30K to buy used BB just to show off...i started my business 3 years ago with N20,000 buying memory cards and flash drives cheaply in Otigba and selling them for 100% profits in Ikoyi,V/I,Lekki,UNILAG, from there i graduated to selling Cell phones, now i have one shop in otigba and another one in Ajah i employ 10 staff with total monthly salary of N400K, I still see a lot of our unemployed,poor and confused youths and graduate come to my shops to buy very expensive phones like BB,IPhone etc especially the girls and these same people will keep complaining of bad economy and unemployment
Salary is slavery no matter the amount you earn or your position naijahotbiz*lefora*com
