Saw this video of a Postmates' Robot doing a delivery in Los Angeles and it got it me wondering, are gig delivery jobs like Postmates, Uber Eats and DoorDash at risk if these robots prove to be successful? Would you still use their services if they were taking away jobs with these robots and in return lowering their delivery fees? #gig # #deliverydriver #jobsearchLosAngeles #TTT

I don't know if I am more intrigued or scared, haha. I hope that this technological advancement will be used to better the experience of delivery drivers, not replace them. I love the idea of lower delivery fees, but not if it comes at the cost of someone losing their source of income! Just my opinion

I would not support this if it took away jobs. There is something important about having a person involved that can make rational choices. People aren't perfect, but then again neither are robots.
