List Of Developing Countries Where Robots Will Take The Most Jobs

Posted on Posted in What's Trending Now

 

Are robots coming for your job?

It’s not an unreasonable question. Just last week, President Barack Obama warned congress that robots are going to begin taking over jobs that pay less than $20 an hour, placing 62% of American jobs at risk. And a massive Merrill Lynch report on the subject notes there are 1.4 million industrial robots around the world.

But a new World Bank report has broken down what developing countries exactly are the most at risk for losing jobs to robots.

This list only looks at developing countries because “the share of occupations that could experience significant automation is actually higher in developing countries than in more advanced ones, where many of these jobs have already disappeared,” the report reads.

The World Bank looked at the feasibility of adopting machine technology and robotics in different developing countries to see what countries were most at risk for job automation.
