The Future of Jobs: What Jobs Will Be Automated?



Occupations with higher hourly wages face a substantially lower likelihood of being automated. We need to help students develop strong skills through a robust training and education agenda to ensure that they benefit from changes in technology, and are able to stay employed as the workers of the future.

  • Jobs with wages of less than $20/hour have an 83% chance of becoming automated.
  • Jobs with wages from $20/hour to $40/hour have a 31% chance of becoming automated.
  • Jobs with wages over $40/hour have a 4% chance of becoming automated.
