In more recent years, the sentiment of this button has become a source of office humor; however, it was once a more serious slogan used by trade unions throughout the United States. Trade, or labor, unions have existed as an organized movement since the late 19th century and were created to represent the best interests of laborers and employees, including wage increases, health benefits, and improved working conditions. This specific “shortage of robots” mantra has been used in several newsletters of the American Postal Workers Union, including the Fresno, California Local 339 and Fargo, North Dakota Local 88.
