Pick a very high % of all of the current labor force - just toss a number out there. That's the percentage of current jobs that will become unnecessary. 95%? Yep, within the realm of possibility. Most everyone left working as a necessity will be overseers of processes - Q&A, problem solving, troubleshooting. It's abstract, but it's also very likely, assuming we do not destroy ourselves in the process of getting there.For identical repetitive task, yes, machines are replacing people.
For everything else people still have to do.
Chances are moonbeam has never worked in a factory.
Most of everyone still working will be doing so voluntarily. Those currently obsessed with social constructs and hierarchies based on the accumulation of wealth should thank their creator that they were born in this time. It won't last forever. When that is no longer the basis for existence and status on a societal scale, what will people do with themselves?
