Robot automation will 'take 800 million jobs by 2030' - report

Up to 800 million global workers will lose their jobs by 2030 and be replaced by robotic automation, a new report from a consultancy has found.

The study of 46 countries and 800 occupations by the McKinsey Global Institute found that up to one-fifth of the global work force will be affected.

It said one-third of the workforce in richer nations like Germany and the US may need to retrain for other jobs.

Machine operators and food workers will be hit hardest, the report says.

Poorer countries that have less money to invest in automation will not be affected as much, according to McKinsey.

Dont worry, the government will take care of you and yours. They will provide and like a good caretaker they will tell you how to live, what to say, what to eat, where to live…

I’ve always wondered how this robot tax will work, they’d have to tax each robot the equivalent wages of the human that it’s replacing (or more if it replaces more than one worker). I wonder how that will work out for them.

Great reset bro! The world will be like a dollar store. You’ll get $10,000 and then everything will cost $1 to rent, so they get back you’re $10,000 every year.

That totally won’t make illegals markets explode.
