I think that while we look at these services we need to see them not as the permanent state of things but as a single step forward in a millennium- long plot-arch.

I believe that we are moving toward an economy where the concept of “work” is completely antiquated and the only real currency are ideas. Chores, maintenance, and essentially any duties that don’t help us accomplish our fulfillment as humans will be automated.

So yes, this current iteration is one that stretches the income gap between two groups of people (that are both relatively small ones), but I think that this iteration will relatively quickly give way to one where more people are able to free up time with automation, and more and more people will be on the comfortable side of that door.
