Did an ATM eat your job?

Filed under: In The News,Politics,Technology — Ken @ 9:02 am


As he did back in June, President Obama has again tried to shift some of the blame for our sagging employment numbers on things like ATMs – this time at one of his bus tour stops in Illinois. I think the President better be careful, as his own job may be the next to be lost to technology – the autopen.
