Machine fires man

I put it under entertainment, but if you were in Ibrahim Diallo's shoes at the time, you probably wouldn’t have laughed. He lost three weeks pay when the employee system where he worked one morning decided to end his employment. No one could do anything about it. Not even his bosses. He was escorted out of the workplace by security.

”What I called job security was only an illusion. I couldn't help but imagine what would have happened if I had actually made a mistake in this company. Automation can be an asset to a company, but there needs to be a way for humans to take over if the machine makes a mistake. I missed 3 weeks of pay because no one could stop the machine.”

It’s an interesting and thought-provoking read.

What a silly situation! It must have been a harrowing experience for him, especially when he was escorted out.

Wow, that poor guy. I can’t imagine going through that.

Happy creating!

This story probably should be read by many people working with automating systems.
