Lunchtime Trivia Friday, June 16

Q: Some researchers have said that 92% of the 2 million people in this sector are at risk of losing their jobs in the next 10-15 years. What sector are they talking about?

A: Retail/sales employees, particularly the grocer sector.

According to documents obtained by The Canadian Press in March, federal government officials were warned the Canadian economy could lose between 1.5 million and 7.5 million jobs in the next 10 to 15 years due to automation.

In a report, Sunil Johal of the Mowat Centre at the University of Toronto estimated the retail sector employed about two million people and between 92  to 97% of those who work in sales or as cashiers are at risk of losing their jobs. (Canadian Grocer article)
