John McDonnell responding to ONS analysis that 1.5 million jobs at risk from automation

John McDonnell MP, Shadow Chancellor, responding to new Office for National Statistics analysis showing women, young people, and part-time workers are most likely to work in roles at high risk of automation, said:

“The workers most at risk from automation are the same workers already badly hit by austerity.

“Workers and trade unions should take charge of the changing economy, not be its casualties.

“The next Labour government will be on the side of workers and our planet, ushering in a Green Industrial Revolution.”
