Whether software that digitizes manual labor makes workers frowny or smiley will come down to how employers choose to use it. So it will boil down to ethics.
But you can also look at it from a worker's perspective in two ways: A good worker works hard (within reason not like "no bathroom breaks" Amazon) and others are just slacking off - this AI could at least objectively measure and help reward productivity. But what about the lazier worker who either keeps disappearing for some reason or is very slow? Well if you were ethical you would identify extra training required or work on a reasonable basic wage, but reward your higher productivity workers? At least with AI there should be no human supervisor bias.
A corporate entity only gets paid themselves based on outcomes (sales volumes or production outputs), they don't get paid for existing. But AI ethics is certainly something that will have to be properly unravelled just like was done a decade or two back for business-customer-supplier ethics.
