Somebody has to repair the machines when they break down...
Might be a field for a young person to look into.
As for myself, I'm very mechanically inclined, and can fix most anything from a car to a gun. Though I'm not currently employed in a field which makes use of those particular skills, if I were to leave my job, I could easily find employment. Possibly even repairing our future robot overlords.
Once again, a person makes themselves valuable through their individual skillset, not some abstract concept like spirituality or creativity.
