A Closer Look

Future of Work – Automation is a threat to low-income Workers unless the education and workforce systems change

In order to help low-income workers weather the economic storm of automation, a number of changes to the education and workforce retraining systems are needed:

1.     Better data must be provided so that practitioners and policymakers can predict and measure the impact of automation and adjust their training programs accordingly. These resources need to be highly detailed, locally applicable, and specifically tailored to the realities faced by their users.

2.     Education systems need to reinvent curriculum content and development timelines to reflect accelerated changes in society.

3.     Policy and financial incentives need to be implemented that encourage the education and workforce systems to react proactively, not reactively, to the changes underway as a result of automation.

4.     We need to promote innovative responses to automation, including the development of new tools and applications and more nimble educational program designs.

Automation is transforming the economy. The education and workforce systems must transform as well if we want to have any chance of allowing low-income workers to keep up.
