Robots and US economy – level 1

15-09-2022 15:00

Companies use more and more robots. In the US, companies buy more robots than last year. Robots make people’s work easier. They work faster. They do tasks which are too hard for people.

In the past, robots work mainly in the car business. The situation changes during the coronavirus. Many workers stay at home. Companies don’t have enough workers.

Companies buy robots. Now many robots work for e-commerce companies. They can move packages quickly and easily.

Companies want to use even more robots. People must control them. They need more people. Before companies buy more robots, workers must learn about them.

Difficult words: task (work that a person or machine must do), e-commerce (the business to buy or sell things online), package (a thing in a box).
