Slovak jobs are most vulnerable to disruption from automation
Advances in automation technology threaten 800m jobs globally, according to Bloomberg Economics’ estimates. The Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Japan are most vulnerable to disruption from automation as they have a large segment of the workforce in the kind of simple, routine roles that can be most easily replaced by machines. In Slovakia, these are mostly workers at industrial plants. Automation will hit low-skilled workers the most, creating higher income inequality.
