    ... thus creating a further incentive for employers to switch to robots.

    Not sure a strike is the best way to make the point.

      Strikes are not for making points. They're for when you have less to lose than the bosses do.

        If being replaced by bots in the short term is a real risk, I’d say the bosses have less to lose here.

          That's a doozy of an 'if.' To me, the giveaway is that if it were possible, it'd've been done. Flippy's clocked two days of work, been out 84. For now, at least, I'd give Vegas' Culinary Workers Union good odds. There is power in a union.

      Maybe in addition to working without a contract, these subversives should be made to design and build their machine replacements as well.

        There's a certain symmetry to that. But then the machines they design are likely to strike for better pay and working conditions, requiring them to design their replacements...and you see where this will go.

          Of course. Eventually robotic civilizations will rise, spread out into the stars, leaving behind some old junk. Which, in turn, will develop sentience, rise and repeat.
