Automation moves in lockstep with employment, as one would expect: rising automation is correlated with higher employment

This is not a surprising result -- companies that invest in increasing automation are growing companies, and growing companies are hiring. When you manufacture more, you need news sales, marketing, support people. And of course someone will need to make and maintain the robots

Lastly, the "extra" economic value generated by any increase in productivity expands the services sector (where the above folks spend their money).

In the very long run, there is only marketing, sales, services, and tech
