Americans Are Worried About Machines Stealing Jobs, Just Not Their Own
More than half of American workers believe machines will do most of the work done by humans, but they aren't very concerned about their own jobs.By Bell Johnson | March 13, 2016
Roughly two-thirds of Americans believe robots and computers will do most of the work currently done by humans within the next 50 years.
That's according to a new report from the Pew Research Center. But while 65 percent of workers worry about the future of machines, 80 percent believe their own jobs are safe from impending technological clutches.
The survey, which polled about 2,000 people, found that younger workers and people in blue-collar jobs have a little more confidence that their jobs will remain unchanged compared to older generations and white-collar professionals.
