Within many workers’ lifetimes, jobs will be radically altered by automation.
And, according to one of the world’s biggest international coalitions, it’s time to develop a plan B.
A recent employment outlook from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), a coalition consisting of 36 countries across the world, said that within the next two decades half of all jobs will be substantially transformed by technology.
