Completely Robotic Factories in Japan
In Japan, as in the U.S., Companies Fear China

From the article:As this article describes, total factory automation is already a reality today. It is only a matter of 10 to 20 years before nearly every factory in the U.S. and Japan is entirely automated. In the U.S., more than 10 million people will lose their jobs and need to find something else.

The problem is that, during those same 10 to 20 years, robots will be moving into the service sector as well. Tens of millions of service sector jobs will also be evaporating. See Robots in 2015 for a discussion.
