Technology! Is an entity I have heard everyone want to embrace in their system, education based or work based. I was in a conference concerning advancement of technology and tell you what, something popped out, the advancement of technology in relation to employment. Automation of manufacturing industries has become a national agenda in many countries. For instance, in the site below, you will find that introduction of internet led to loss of 500000 jobs within 15 years of its introduction. Before you draw a conclusion, internet created 1.2 million jobs in the same span of time. Using the above concept, maybe advancement of technology is the cause of loss of jobs and at the same time, a prime job creator.
