Tim Postma (Highly likely) says
because of more modern ways then tool and die such as digital manufacturing , its easier to just cnc mill or 3dprinting & will eventually out pace traditional jobs in the supply chain but keep in mind to have a future to get future jobs its important to accept automation and retool the skills needed because learning automation skills like coding and 3dprinting will make those people a opportunity
