^Playing devil's advocate. I think that cuts both ways. We are beginning to see major leaps in AI (see Watson 2.0 and the new Wolfram language), in which computers may start taking the jobs of highly quality professionals. For example, computers that are learning to debate and reason might start making medical decisions instead of a professional (it's easier to deny someone the medical attention through a computer's algorithm rather than having a human doing it and affecting their conscience). For example, drones are becoming more and more automated and less and less user controlled. For example, the power of physical computing in pair with AI to automate almost ANY task (auto baking pizzas synced up to an online ordering system, automated payment systems in every store, etc.) With all of the advancements in auto-driving vehicles, I would not be surprised to see computers taking the jobs of taxi cabs, and possibly trains, airplaines, etc. through extraordinary developments.
