Losing jobs due to automation is a very fast approaching reality. Self driving trucks and cars, along with many other industrial automation, will displace an immense amount of the working American population. These are not the only jobs that will be lost on account of automation, industries like the coal industry and a very large portion of jobs "brought back" to America in Donald Trump's presidency will also disappear as wide automation takes over in the near future.

On the other hand, tech giants like Microsoft, Google, Apple and Amazon are billion/trillion dollar companies that pay 0% in tax dividends and a part of their vast wealth comes from brokering the data of people like you and I.

Need for a leader that combines these two flags into a system that will go hand in hand with the super industrialized age we live in now has arisen. Imposing income tax on every mile of highway covered by automated vehicles and data brokerage will fund Universal Basic Income. Universal Basic Income is a system that Andrew Yang is a big spokesman for. Every single American will get a thousand dollars every month. This will allow Americans to steer away from greenhouse gas emitting and high manual labor jobs to other more lucrative career paths within society.

Making UBI and Tech Taxation a reality would supplement the economy greatly and result in long term growth.
