Today, robots are increasingly present in the machine building industry, sometimes even in some sections to replace workers altogether, due to the high quality of their work, repetitive, without stopping or pausing, without any manufacturing and assembly scuffs. Additionally, robots do not get sick, do not require medical leave or rest, work faster and better than humans and also support toxic environments from dyers, general assemblies, etc. Generally, robots have increased the quality and productivity of work and have not even created a union to defend their claims, demanding increased wages for them and larger holidays. Interestingly, a robot is working without a break, but without salary, without breaks, without complaining about working conditions in the plant. It has come to the effect that the big car manufacturers and even others, have entire sections in which only robots work. They do not have to worry about each other, do not quarrel, do not complain, do not cry, do not ask for the salary, do not require leave, they do not want free days and can work with high returns and Saturday and Sunday, if necessary on three shifts without a break. The importance of implementing robots can no longer be challenged. They have so increased the quality of work and the production of an enterprise that they can no longer give up their help. Workers have reclassified themselves and work only in more friendly workplaces, or in other workplaces, such as supermarkets, in better conditions, with higher wages, with several days off and they are also pleased and all this is due to production and additional gains from higher sales due to the robot work in large factories. We can clearly state that robots have improved our lives considerably. Thanks to them, a new free day was introduced for almost all working people, Friday, in addition to Saturday and we may soon be able to introduce another free day, but we have to choose whether it is Monday or Thursday. People, in the beginning, were taught by the trade union bosses to chase and sabotage the robots, to ruin them and not to accept them. Today things are clear and the robots work quietly in the big companies and factories for the sake of everyone, so now we can all accept the silence of the automation, the robotics, the electronics, without letting us be fooled by the union leaders, who slowly slow down and they will calm down. Robots can work on three shifts, that is, permanently, but not by shifting them like people did, but always remaining the same robots deployed in operation, nonstop, for days, without breaks, without rest, without problems. If we like it or not like, robots have already stolen all our hard works places.
