Second after Souh Korea per 10,000 manufacturing workers. Btw, the International Federation of Robotics defines industrial robots as machines that are automatically controlled and re-programmable; single-purpose equipment does not count.
What this seems to indicate is that the manufacturing of pharma and electronic products, the leading exports, here is highly automated.
So where do the FTs fit in other than in the manual labour sector (which S’poreans shun)?
Why u think why so many PMETs are unhappy?
Why wages don’t grow in line with property prices:
Real wage growth in many rich economies has been disappointing for much of the past two decades. Low wages are enabling some reallocation of workers. An overwhelming share of the growth in employment in rich economies over the past few decades has been in services, nearly half in low-paying fields like retailing and hospitality. Employment in such areas has been able to grow, in part, because of an abundance of cheap labour.
