Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Hey, Emma. Do you also agree with having robots in the workplace in the future?
Certainly! Employees who work in hazardous environments will be grateful
that robots will reduce some of the dangers.
I agree with that too. Sharp objects and machinery that run at a high temperature can easily injure a person.
Employers will be ecstatic as well since robots do not get frustrated or need time off.
Also, robots will always deliver quality. They’re less likely to make mistakes because they’re designed for accurate, repetitive motion.
Employees, I assume, would be happy to let robots do the work
that leaves them exhausted.
I couldn’t agree more! But do you think that we’ll be needing more robots than humans?
I don’t think so. Robots need people for monitoring and supervision.
We’ll need more people to build those robots.
