Hello, I am Austin Anderson and today I will report about the future of work will be. We have gathered up information about the three most likely outcomes for the future of work. These are the gig economy, remote working and automation. Today I will focus on automation, as it is would create more opportunities for people. Now what does automation actually mean? Automation is when a human worker is replaced with a robot.
Many people like the idea of automation but it can and probably will cause its fair share of problems. People could lose their jobs and become poor or the robots could malfunction. There could be some opportunities that could come out of this, though. There could be somebody who watches the robots to check if they malfunction and repair them, which creates a whole new job. Or suppose somebody didn't like their job and got replaced. They could finally find a new fitting job. Also, the robots don't need to be payed and they don't take days off or do shifts.
Now we interview some workers.
"How has the pandemic affected your supermarket?"
"Well, me and my brother used to run a supermarket in our local street. But my brother has been very sick lately and I've been working by myself. I wish the government would do something to help small buisnesses like mine."
I'm very sorry to hear that, but do you believe this pandemic will end?"
" If everyone obliges to the governments rules to keep us all safe, and we all social distance, wash hands regularly and quarantine when we need to, we could definitely beat the virus"
Now back to me, we're going to look at four good skills for an ideal worker. It's important to have these four skills, listening, speaking, problem solving and creativity because if you got a problem you can be creative and think of a solution or you could communicate to somebody for help. The most important out of thhese skills are these two: problem solving, because there's going to be a lot of challenging problems in the future that people will have to face and creativity because lets say you work in a toy factory and you'd been thinking for ages. ''What should the next toy be?'' That's where creativity comes to play because you're always making new creations and constantly brainstorming.
Well there folks, that's the end of todays broadcast, tommorrow we will be talking about a possible vaccine for COVID19, I'm Austin Anderson and I'll see you tommorrow.
