Increases in productivity leads to increases in wages. Automation also creates jobs that are safer, less repetitive and have lower turnover which offer a better career path long term.

By lowering costs, automation increases demand, which in turn creates jobs. Automation also causes a ripple effect, lower costs creates new demand for products and more jobs.
