Robotics, Jobs, and You

Mar 21, 2015

An MIT Report  says that within 20 years, nearly half of all jobs could be eliminated by robots and other automation. But others argue that technology has always created new jobs we can’t even imagine. What jobs will be eliminated? Which ones created? Will it be a net loss or net gain? What are implications of the coming Robotic Age for all of us?

To help us sort it out, on the Mar. 22, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll talk with robotics insider Erin Rapacki, welcome to Work with Marty Nemko.

And as usual, you can call in for a Workover. Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you love, I usually can help.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on 91.7 FM and is archived for a week on NPR.org and iTunes, and in perpetuity here on KALW.org.
