The robot revolution will be worse for men

  • Young people — especially those in rural areas or who are underrepresented minorities — will have a greater likelihood of having their jobs replaced by automation.
  • Jobs traditionally held by men have a higher “average automation potential” than those held by women, meaning that a greater share of those tasks could be automated with current technology, according to Brookings.
  • That’s because the occupations men are more likely to hold tend to be more manual and more easily replaced by machines and artificial intelligence.
  • Women are also now more likely to attain higher education degrees than men, meaning their jobs could be somewhat safer from being usurped by automation.
  • Heartland states and rural areas — places that have large shares of employment in routine-intensive occupations like those found in the manufacturing, transportation, and extraction industries — contain a disproportionate share of occupations whose tasks are highly automatable.
