It’s amazing to be an appliance repairman in the this changing age of technology and science. Here at Our Future Now we take the potential of our future and talk about it now. Other careers like trucking and auto detailing are changing too and it’s natural for us in this market to worry and be prepared for how our careers as technicians will last for decades to come. As robots get smarter will our jobs disappear, just like all the other industries?
As drones and robots built by scientists find new ways to build home appliances and repair them, we might find ourselves in a future where humans are no longer needed in the market of keeping your kitchen fridge or your basement washing machine in tip top shape.
Then again, we might also find ourselves in a future where robots aren’t able to repair a home appliances quite like a human can and so appliance technicians, their businesses and heirs can look forward to another century or more of need in the world.
Another possibility is that all appliances become extremely disposable and replaceable and it can be not only more economical but environmentally-friendly to have a broken home appliance replaced rather than repaired. Businesses who make a living off repairing broken appliances in cities all around the world should explore all possibilities. If we don’t do it to be ready for what may come then we can choose to do it for mind-candy and entertainment. We might come up with solutions while contemplating these things and I hope you join us here at Our Future Now for a long discussion about what the future of the appliance technician’s career beholds.
