Hire a robot, obviate a job?

What if I told you it’s possible to get on the other side of “finding a job” by hiring a robot? Okay, that sounds weird. But, hear me out. Reality has it that jobs are being replaced by robots of various forms, for good and bad. Regardless of the rates of change, some jobs are being replaced by robots. Well, what if those people turned around and then found ways to also use robots to their economic advantage? Surely at least some of them would beg, borrow or steal that technology to leverage to their advantage, right?
