End of election season hits
robocall robots hard
Robocall robot
Thousands of robots hit the unemployment line this week as human politicians laid off robocall staffs nationwide.

"I don't know what I'm going to do," one distressed robot said. "Nobody is hiring. I even applied for work as a Roomba vacuum, but got nowhere."

California was especially hard-hit by the layoffs. Meg Whitman alone employed an army of robocallers. Her speeches and debate answers were also scripted by robots.

Economists said the robot employment picture could remain grim for another four years.
