(KPLR) – In Monday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, JB ask what are you celebrating this Labor Day.

Whenever I read something about a celebration in new technology, it seems to put more people out of work.

There are even automated news reports.   Some apps use voice recognition systems to read news stories instead of using real reporters. I wonder how long it will be before robots are doing all the work.

On this Labor Day I'll celebrate all the people who do the heavy lifting that even robots can't do.   I'm talking about the manual labor some of us could never do.   You deserve the day off.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
