Are jobs being destroyed by Information Technology?

  • Yes, some jobs are being destroyed

    Some jobs are being destroyed by information technology, however some jobs are also being created with new technology. I think that the most automated and simple jobs will be eliminated first, and as technology advances more and more jobs will be eliminated. Thus the lower skilled worker may have a harder time finding a job in the future.

  • Unemployed By Technology

    With the creation of technology, there have a number of jobs that have been made obsolete. There is no doubt that some have lost their jobs due to the advancement of technology, and that is to be expected. In an ever changing world, it is understood that some things become outdated. While technology has indeed claimed the lives of many jobs, it has also added new jobs into the mix, needing new employees as well. These employees are higher trained and better paid. So, in the big picture, it is a matter of perspective.

  • No: Jobs Are Not Destroyed By IT

    IT is a source of jobs for people, and facilitates the high tech world which we live in. What will destroy jobs, ironically, is the larger system itself, as it destabilizes from the corrupt practices of CEO's and government officials, the advent of climate catastrophe, and the increasing automation of jobs by advanced robotics and AI algorithms.
