Mark Zuckerberg tells Harvard grads that automation will take jobs, and it’s up to millennials to create more

Thank you Mark for bringing attention to future job loss due to automation.

“… today, technology and automation are eliminating many jobs. Membership in a lot of communities has been declining. A lot people are feeling disconnected and depressed, and are trying to fill a void in their lives.”

The Facebook executive said that it’s time for this generation to define a “social contract” in the vein of the New Deal or the Great Society. In his remarks, Zuckerberg said that we should explore ideas such as universal basic income — the idea that everyone should receive a base salary — and explore ways to provide health care and childcare in ways that aren’t tied to an employer.
