In the context of the politics of labor and technology, the below image might be a Rorschach test of sorts:
Every construction site in Taipei is guarded by one of these figures–a driver-scarecrow designed to wave warning beacons and alert motorists of construction ahead.
Waving a warning beacon is probably the least skilled job on any construction site. It’s low-skill to operate, boring, and low-tech to replace. I’m amazed these aren’t more popular in the US and Europe.
Fodder in the cannon of pro-automation voices. A potential straw-man for neo-luddites.
