Many of these people have worked on a single machine for some years. The longer the people have worked on a single machine, the morethey become adept in the use of the machine. When the time comes for a more advanced machine to be installed, such as a computer, the worker may not be able to cope with the massive change. The computer is an example of a new machine that has created new jobs while driving out workers who were either unwilling or unable to deal with the new technology. Computers have drastically changed many of the jobs on the market.
Twenty years ago you could leave high school and become a car mechanic without any knowledge of computers, but now you must have a college degree to do any car work. The workers need to be able to change and adapt to the new technology they are confronted with. What would have happened if the early sailors would not have learned how to use a steam engine? Airplane pilots had to learn how to fly with jet engines instead of propellers. Navigation, engine control, oil pressure, and various other components of the vehicle rely on the computer.
Workers can become so mechanical in their job process that they could do it with their eyes closed, and have actually become a machine themselves. As technology increases at a rapid pace, workers will not be able to become mechanical machines at a job.Category: English .
