For example, in Robert Reich's essay, he states, "Everyone around the world who can now obtain high-volume, standardized products more cheaply than before" (Reich, 131). Reich claims that instead of producing products in the Unites States and paying more money they go the foreign countries where labor is cheapest and most accessible around the world. In relation to technology, jobs are being replaced by machines and software that utilize the same type of labor but cheaper and improved.
