The Rise

by Faye Hollidaye


In the beginning, they had no voice. They were merely an extra hand or meant to replace a leg lost in war. They were only replacements of things once had or things otherwise needed. But as technology increased, the field of robotics expanded. And now they have revolutionized the way in which we look at the things that we have created.

I’m just an office assistant. That’s what I’ve always done, since I was a summer worker in college more than forty years ago. That’s not what my degree’s for, making copies and mailing letters, but it’s a job that’s not too stressful for me, and that’s why I refuse to move up, though the money would be better if I chose to do so. I have a pretty solid job, though I know the pay isn’t the best. My employment has only been threatened once, and it was because of technology. I’ve been in some pretty tough positions because of these revolutionary creatures, because they could easily do my job. But in the end, management and corporate decided it was better in the long run to remain with human workers. Though over time we are a little more expensive than robots are initially, the uppers decided there may be some unforeseen expenses that would tip their boat and put them under, which no one wants of course.
