...Co-founder of Microsoft Bill Gates suggests that robots that take human jobs should pay taxes.
“Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed and you get income tax, Social Security tax, all those things. If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level,” Gates explained in an interview with Quartz.
…Gates believes there will be little resistance from companies that employ a robot workforce.
