I went to high school about 15 min from where they build the Honda accords, civics, gold wings, and some acuras. As seniors you would take a tour of the plant and they would give a lecture about Honda. We were the first tour group that they basically told they would not be looking to hire any of us when we graduated (I graduated in 2000), they wanted us to go to college or go to tech schools and get experience working with robots. They laid out how each year they were hiring less and less people because robots could do the jobs better (too many reasons to list here). There are down several thousand jobs since that time so i guess they were right.
