    The reporter grounds the story in Bangladesh. Traveled the world to get thoughts how countries like Bangladesh should cope with this. Yet, failed to take any statement from policymakers from Bangladesh or any other such developing countries to get their thoughts how they see this challenges and what is their plan for future. Otherwise, a fantastic report.

    May be USA will make total automatic T-shirt but it will not cheap then Bangladesh produced T-shirt till 2024.
    Beside machine can take the job from Human but could never take their creativity and handwork from human.
    And all kind of hand made product will be more popular worldwide within 2025.

    I was going to watch this video and then I realized it was made by the same people who made a horribly inaccurate and biased video I watched recently about UBIs. This channel is like local news station reporters finally figured out that YouTube exists. Keep your sensationalized blatantly biased news stories on basic cable. This type of media is part of what has polarized our country, and given people a false sense of understanding topics they have done none of their own research on. WSJ either evolve or die out, this in between is embarrassing.

    When it comes to education, America has Betsy DeVos : she'll give Bangladesh every opportunity to catch up with "the West"… especially once young Americans have been taught the Earth is flat and can't tell where "West" is.

    This sort of stuff is going to force everyone to re-evaluate what we consider 'work' and how wealth is distributed. Currently the tech efficiency gains keep going into fewer and fewer hands, but that can't last forever – people need capital to keep capitalism going. There will be a period of augmentation, where people work side-by-side with automation, but why would they stop there? We will keep advancing, throw AI into the mix and its anyone's guess how far this will go. We're about to transition into a new economy, but the transition period won't be pretty because the current beneficiaries of the system won't go down without a fight.

    Companies racing to lower labor costs with autonomous I believe will find in the end they have no customers. The workers will be out of work with no income, no means to buy the goods that they once produced and if these companies think the 1% are going to be shopping at H&H and other fast fashion companies they are going to be in for a big surprise.

    Great, bring whole T-shirt industry back to america and no jobs created. Make millions people in third country lose their jobs and whom are you going to sell those T shirts to when people do not have jobs to earn money and buy them. Alien?

    Teach a person to fish, feed them for a lifetime. People simply need to learn how to grow their own food, purify their own water, and generate their own electricity. Once you have basic needs covered, then they can grow from there.

    Automation is going to allow people to educate themselves and become far more skilled than they would be working in a garment factory for the rest of their lives. Naturally, people will lose jobs and will suffer for a time, but as humans always do we adapt and become more skilled as a species over time. You can fear the machines, but you cannot stop the machines. Money talks, and robots walk.

    If a machine can take a humans job, then it should – having a human do the machine's work means that we treat humans as machines.
    Humans should do human work.
