According to this article, " A 2024 Gallup poll found that nearly 25% of workers worry that their jobs can become obsolete because of AI, up from 15% in 2021." This would not be an issue except for the fact that we currently structure society such that, if you do not have a job, you are relegated to a life of pain and poverty. We should rethink this. Certainly, as the IBM blog suggests, lets think about reskilling. But articles like this that focus only on reskilling serve as a distraction from the larger issues. But let's also reimagine the social and corporate compact to ensure everybody earns a share of the increased productivity AI will generate. Because the changing workplace isn't the employee's problem. It's everybody's problem.
