I bet the robots get treated better than the humans especially since they do not need bathroom breaks. Who knows about the truth - except I think we can be certain the corporate dolts will never admit any hint of mistreatment.Amigo, you know "The price and the Pauper" was naught but a children's story, right?
Actually, they did a story about Amazon's use of robots. I think it is, or was, going to be on, "60 Minutes Overtime", (?), The robots Amazon showed, all had front and side traffic braking. They had the news crew walking in front of them, and they worked perfectly, and obviously safely.
Do I know if this is the "whole story," obviously not.
Am I suspicious of worker's compensation lawsuits? You betcha. But I do think the truth lies somewhere between the two extremes of opinion. That's just "good old human nature" at play.
