As artificial technology (AI) continues to works it’s way further into the personal and work fabric of America, 74% of adults believe that AI will cause unemployment to rise, according to the latest American Staffing Association Workforce Monitor® online survey conducted by The Harris Poll.
With the exponential increases in work-related AI tools in recent months, many people are excited about the benefits it brings, but many also believe that further advancements in automation may threaten their opportunities for employment.
Seventy-four percent of Americans believe increased automation will lead to higher unemployment by taking jobs away from humans. The survey also found that nearly half (47%) of all employed Americans feel automation could easily replace their jobs.
“Workers are trying to figure out what the rise of artificial intelligence means for their careers,” said Richard Wahlquist, chief executive officer at the American Staffing Association. “Employers must take responsibility for helping their workforce navigate and evolve to meet rapid changes in the economy through training and upskilling. Further, it’s imperative that organizations communicate with employees as new AI technology is deployed to set expectations and provide transparency.”
