Well of course they count! I never said that they didn’t. I was quite clearly referring to whether robots had caused mass unemployment, not to wage levels.

Furthermore, if wages have stagnated in your particular country, there may be many possible reasons for that — and automation may or may not be one of them. But this is not an article about your particular country. As I’m confident you are aware, your particular country does not constitute the entire world.
