The jobs are gone and they aren’t coming back

An interesting article published recently in The Guardian titled: The robot debate is over: the jobs are gone and they aren’t coming back puts forward a clear argument that in the next 20 years many many jobs will be lost to automation. They’re not just talking about manufacturing jobs and driving they also mean professional jobs like accountancy and the law. Society needs to address this issue with increasing urgency.
