I suspect companies are going to get significant pushback on things like this and boycotting companies that shift away from human workers to AI is going to be a big social issue over the next few years.

People don't even boycott companies that use slave labor in other countries. I doubt anyone will be boycotting this.

At the end people will buy what's cheaper. Automation is unstoppable on all fronts because of competition.
