Rise of the robots threatens to displace jobs, report warns

Rise of the robots threatens to displace jobs, report warns

The report shows that more than one in five existing jobs in Scottish cities (20 per cent) are likely to be displaced by 2030 as a result of the changes - amounting to around 230,000 jobs in total.

Northern and Midlands cities will be more exposed to job losses as the rise of robots continues, according to a new survey. Mansfield, Sunderland and Wakefield are among the cities that could definitely go through 40 percent job loss, while Oxford and Cambridge are at a risk of losing up to 13 percent.

Whilst the United Kingdom average of jobs at risk of being replaced by automation stands at 21%, the figure stands at a much lower 13-18% for wealthier locations closer to London, Cambridge and Oxford.

The report, which assessed 62 cities across the United Kingdom, is likely to reignite debate about investment discrepancies across the north-south divide, particularly as affluent areas such as Oxford and Cambridge have a job risk of just 13%.

The emergence of new industries will create new jobs which do not now exist - just as the rise of sectors such as the IT industry did over the past century, it said. Those fields account for roughly 30 percent of jobs in Mansfield, the city likely to be hit the hardest by automation.

Sunderland was among 63 large urban areas in the United Kingdom explored in the economic study, which also found retail, customer service and warehouse jobs are among those also most at risk.

Federal prosecutors also revealed that some of Salling's victims were between the ages of three and five years old. Prosecutors and Salling had agreed to ask a judge to sentence the actor to between four to seven years in prison.

He said "In an ever more divided country, it's increasingly clear that a one-size-fits-all approach from central government is inadequate to address the myriad issues that different places face... The challenges and opportunities ahead for Blackburn are very different to those for Brighton", Carter said.

A report has revealed the rise in robots could put almost 36,000 jobs in Aberdeen at risk in the next 12 years. "Cities in Scotland need more powers and resources to tackle the issues that automation and globalisation will present, and to make the most of the benefits they will bring".

However, the Institute of Fiscal Studies has also warned that above-inflation increases to the National Living Wage may have unforeseen effects on the pace of automation.

For the over-25s, the minimum wage now stands at £7.50, covering 4 per cent of employees, and will rise to £7.83 in April.

Nearly 30 per cent of jobs in some northern towns are in occupations at risk of shrinking by 2030, thanks to a wave of automation and further globalisation, according to new analysis.
