From New York Post:

“Robots and automation will destroy American jobs” is a “worrying refrain,” but “a look at the facts” shows “a very different reality,” contends Eli Lehrer at the Washington Examiner. “Jobs are not currently disappearing due to automation in a way that throws people out of work — and haven’t done so historically.” Nor is there any “new technology now on the horizon that will allow the same amount of economic production to occur with vastly fewer people.” Unemployment has “remained near historical lows,” largely because “entire categories of jobs have never vanished overnight.” At the moment, there’s simply “no real evidence that robots are about to take” jobs on a “massive scale.”
