Abstract: Throughout the 20th century, debate persisted concerning the effects of technological progress on the jobs market. As recently as 2014, Pew Research surveyed 1896 economists and technology experts, of whom 48% believed that new technologies would create more jobs than they would eliminate in the next ten years, while 52% believed that they would not. If the effect of automation on overall employment remains uncertain, the fact that the nature of the jobs available is changing is indisputable.
