Robotics and our future workforce

I mentor a competitive high school robotics team (which recently won the FIRST World Championship). I work with these students because I see that we must develop them to participate effectively in the future workforce. So I saw with interest this month that both the Atlantic Monthly and the Journal of Economic Perspectives ran articles on how increasing use of robots could reduce, or even eliminate, the need for humans working. The Atlantic has long been running a series of articles on the issue; a 2011 article in particular piqued my interest in with working with Citrus Circuits.
