As technology and society continue to integrate artificial intelligence (AI), nearly three-quarters of American adults (74%) fear higher unemployment is on the horizon as a result, according to the latest American Staffing Association Workforce Monitor® online survey conducted by The Harris Poll. The survey also found that nearly half (47%) of all employed Americans feel automation could easily replace their jobs.
“Employers must take responsibility for helping their workforce navigate and evolve to meet rapid changes in the economy through training and upskilling,” said Richard Wahlquist, chief executive officer at the American Staffing Association. “Further, it’s imperative that organizations communicate with employees as new AI technology is deployed to set expectations and provide transparency.”
