The use of capital replaces the labor capital thereby increasing unemployment. Machines will replace in a bid to increase profits but neglecting the needs of people. Robots do not feed families nor do they have responsibilities apart from the services they may go through with time. I object to the laws that allows firms and organizations to retrench humans from their daily wages. These laws are with no humor and sense of humanity. Only selfish people would impose and approve such laws.

But if robots took over the working industry that would be more efficient and would get rid of a heavy burden from the working class, and if robots are efficient enough (which they are) that means the government could give food/money to the working/laboring class, and the economy would boom and all together the world would be far bedder place than it is now.

Realising poor policies and already unimplemented unemployment eradication policies eg GEAR in South Africa, i doubt the government will ever implement income distribution policies. South Africa is one of the countries with highest Gini coefficient thus high income inequality. Corruption is at its toll and those in government will always think of themselves. Unendless and senseless projects will always be in the pipeline eg Nkandla.
