Experts Forecast Total Change on the Job Market around 2030

Business predict total change in the labour market by 2030. 85% of the professions will be entirely new, and employers will increasingly rely on machines and robots instead of human labour. The founder of the Software University, Svetlin Nakov, said on 21st of March at a conference on the future of work, organised by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy. The event is part of the programme of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU.

Automation will have an impact on the job market, making low-qualified workers vulnerable, experts think. Moreover, old jobs are endangered to go extinct.

Over time, robots will increasingly automate the work of people in every sector where possible.

It means that people will have to have higher skills not just to learn to serve coffee but to learn how to design artificial intelligence, how to generally be more than the machines. We will have restaurants without cooks, for example, we will order via our mobile phones, because credit cards will not exist, everything will be virtual, Svetlin Nakov said.

Marianne Thyssen, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility: And if we do nothing, these people will be out of work and this will create new social inequalities.

Thus, by 2030, 85% of the professions will be new and many will disappear altogether. Amidst increasingly aging population, however, there will still be jobs that can not be replaced by machines.

Claire Harasty from the International Labour Organisation said an important influence on this trend would be the need for people to look after elderly people, to build new special facilities orientated towards the elderly people.

The data shows that the more aging the population on the planet is, the less will be the difference in pay between men and women.
