What will automation mean for wages and income inequality

As the pace of automation quickens, companies and workers alike are grappling with what this means for the future of work. A recent report from McKinsey & Company suggests that the consequences could be dire for many, with wage gaps and income inequality likely to worsen

Key Points:

  • Automation is already having an impact on the workforce, with routine and repetitive jobs being the most vulnerable to displacement.
  • Workers in low-wage jobs are likely to be hit the hardest, while high-wage workers may see their incomes rise.
  • The report suggests that income inequality is likely to widen as a result of automation, exacerbating an already troubling trend.
  • Governments, businesses, and workers all have a role to play in addressing these challenges, with potential solutions including retraining and upskilling, as well as policies that promote job creation and income redistribution.
  • The report highlights the need for a coordinated response to the challenges posed by automation, with stakeholders at all levels working together to ensure that the benefits of technological progress are shared fairly.

Personal Insights:

  • The full report is very very insightful now looking back at it.
  • Everyone’s job is going to change to some degree.
