"income inequality" is a chimera. Different people get paid differently for different skills, based on the value they presumably bring to the table.

We're starting to automate people out of jobs permanently, with the rise of industrial robots and follow-on technologies.

However, low-value jobs will only pay as much as the value delivered to the employer. Which is going to make for increasingly interesting times.

In the Chinese sense of "interesting times". . . .
