800 Million Jobs Expected to be Replaced by Robots by 2030

A new report predicts that by 2030, 800 million jobs around the world will be replaced by robots.

A study across 46 countries and 800 jobs showed one-fifth of the global workforce will be effected.

The richer countries that have money to filter into automation will be hit the hardest, with machine operators and food workers feeling the blow the most.

Paid drivers will likely be one of the first jobs to convert to automation, with the first driverless car being tested this past October in Ottawa.

Jobs requiring human interaction like doctors, lawyers and teachers are at far less risk of being replaced.

This also means the need for post secondary education will grow as low skilled jobs are replaced.

The report urges governments to retrain its’ citizens to prepare for what seems like an inevitable job shortage.
