The Independent brings to attention a report by the Foundation of Young Australians (FYA) which warns that more than half of the careers being chased by young people today will be radically affected by automation and technology in the next 10 to 15 years.
"Many of the jobs they are studying could vanish in 10 to 15 years' time."
The report also states that they way we work will change - further automation, globalisation and more collaborative and open careers could help lower the barriers to work, and make our working lives more flexible and less regimented.
However, these changes could also lead to rises in unemployment, inequality, and job insecurity.
