Explain how two global trends might result in a decrease in job security for young workers in Australia. (6 marks) Automation • the technologies that automated millions of routine production jobs (e.g. assembly-line work) are now rapidly encroaching on more complex routine and non-routine tasks. In Australia, some 40% of our current jobs are considered at high risk of automation over the next 10-15 years. Therefore, job security in these types of occupations will be significantly reduced by developing automation • automation threatens the job security of young workers in routine transaction jobs (e.g. clerical and service work) for entry level work as much of this type of work will be fulfilled by automated services. Research suggests that up to 11% of service sectors jobs may be at risk from being lost to workers undertaking jobs (e.g. retail checkout work at supermarkets and large department stores being replaced by self-service operations and bank teller work replaced by ATM’s and on-line banking) • advances in deep learning and other forms of artificial intelligence means the work of information workers is also threatened – young workers with professional qualifications who often perform routine tasks (e.g. radiologists) may also have their job security threatened by automation • workers in transport and logistics (such as taxi and delivery drivers) and office support (such as receptionists and security guards) are likely to be substituted by automated machines and that many workers in sales and services (such as cashiers, counter and rental clerks, telemarketers and accountants) also faced a high risk of automated computerisation. Therefore, any young worker in these types of occupations have their future job security threatened by these likely changes • there are a host of both highly skilled and less skilled jobs being created – thanks to technology – that 10 years ago did not exist: e.g. app developers, big data analysts, UX designer, personal brand manager, digital content analyst, drone pilot. Therefore, workers in threatened industries where job security has been reduced need to consider retraining into these type of occupations, if they want to improve their job security in the future. Globalisation • Australia has already lost hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs to competing locations around the world, so the job security of young workers in these types of industries has been eroded by this trend • new technology platforms are making it possible for foreign workers to do jobs in Australia from remote locations. This would certainly threaten the job security of young workers
