Aaaaand why not let a human do the work?  Either we

1) cut down on the number of people or

2) cut down on the jobs being automated or

3) quit bitching about freeloaders who don't work and still want luxuries like food and housing.

Pick 1.

4) Add new jobs to do new things.

5) Do more complex things - automate the boring bits and use people to do the creative bits.

There's no reason why the total amount of work output by the human race should remain constant. So I dispute that more automation of jobs inevitably leads to less work for people to do overall.
