Making the pay for people who work at McDonalds and other stores high is all fine and good. A new report states they just won’t have a job. The report itself focused on London, but it can very well happen here that within 10 years, there will be very few customer service jobs. So, the people who believe we need to overpay the people at McDonalds, so sad.

Automation is coming

Here, via ZDNet, is what is happening.

The broad conclusion of Deloitte’s research is that in the future there will be fewer and fewer tasks where labour alone is required and more and more tasks where brainpower is the given.

“Advances in user interfaces enable computers to respond more efficiently to requests from customers, reducing the need for human intervention in some areas of customer service. Improved sensors and the creation of three-dimensional road maps are opening up possibilities for automated vehicle navigation,” the report noted.

The research indicates that the jobs least at risk from computerisation are in areas such as senior management and financial services; computers, engineering, and science; education; legal services; community services; the arts and media; and health care. The jobs most at risk are in office and administrative support work; sales and services; transportation; and construction and extraction.

As for the UK, London has less to worry about in this area than other regions, but not by much. Across the UK 35 percent of jobs can be considered at high risk of being lost through automation, with 43 percent at low risk or no risk. In London those percentages show a wide difference with 30 percent at high risk and 50 percent at no risk.

Those results come from a separate research report, carried out by Carl Benedikt Frey, of the Oxford Martin School, and Michael A Osbornework, of the University of Oxford. Their paper, The Future of Work: How susceptible are jobs to computerisation?, can be found here.

When it comes to machines automating jobs, the Deloitte researchers predict there will be a huge geographical difference. “We found that within the UK, a lower proportion of jobs are at risk in London than in the rest of the UK,” they wrote. But even in London, the research suggests, “substantial changes are inevitable”.

The phenomenon, Deloitte points out, will affect the poor more than the wealthy. People in jobs in London “earning less than £30,000 a year are over eight times more likely to find their jobs disappear than those earning more than £100,000”.
