Are Americans worried that advancing technology could threaten their jobs one day? According to a survey conducted by YouGov, U.S. workers with the lowest incomes are the most likely to worry about losing their jobs as technology is more likely to make them obsolete. Over half of Americans earning $40,000 or less are at least a little worried. By contrast, only 37 percent of workers earning $80,000 or more are at least a little worried about the threat technology presents to their jobs.
This chart shows the percentage of people in the U.S. worried they might lose their job to advancing technology.
