Our world is changing right before our very eyes. New technological developments are occurring on a daily basis. Robots are performing repetitive tasks that were performed by low-skilled workers. Bank tellers are losing their jobs due to the iPhone and ATM machines. We have noticed that Bank of America has closed drive-thru lanes at their banks and laid off bank tellers. Bank of America says it’s due to changing consumer behavior, but no one can deny that it saves millions of dollars for Bank of America!
