whys that? i see it happening like this. (say if i were in charge lol)
(now i didn't think of this tell now, but in order for this to work i have to be president of the world, so i guess a one world government would sorta be needed to make sure everyone got treated fairly, darn it)
I make an announcement that no one has to quit there jobs, but no one has to work there jobs any longer as well, i also state that the reason for this is society is going threw a drastic change for the better, everything, your house, car, food, entertainment, everything is now free.
Everyone's aloud to keep there job, or pursue any job of there liking keeping in mind they will be working with robots, college and training for everything is now free, so pursue your dreams.
the only problem i see is people becoming lazy like the folks of Wall-E, but really only a small majority of society consist of lazy people IMO
