A recent study by the World Economic Forum, “The Future of Jobs 2028,” projects that by 2022, machines will carry out 42% of all labor, and an accelerated 52% just three years later. That’s up from a 29% automated share last year.
About 75 million workers could lose their jobs to automation by 2022. However, if those workers are given “significant” re-skilling, and a pipeline of new workers is created in schools and colleges, companies could create 133 million new jobs by 2022.
The report defines “signficant” as more than three months of retraining. 9/25/2018
