Are Robots Killing Social Programs?

This article is about how robots will displace approximately 50% of the labor force between 2023 and 2033, according to an Oxford report from 2013. Bill Gates thinks this is a huge problem for income tax, and by extension, the future of important social programs. My argument includes if it is ethical for businesses to replace humans job with robots. An alternative argument is that the people whose jobs are most likely to be taken over by robots do not significantly contribute to the governments revenue from income tax. Therefore, the labor effects of more robots in the work force may not pose as big as a threat to social programs as Bill Gates predicted.
