UCLA Anderson Forecast presents
  Special Topic: The 21st Century Workforce: Turning Robots into Helpers, Not Competitors of our Youth
  Executive Dining Room, UCLA Anderson School
Thursday, September 12, 2013
7:30am - 11:30am

  (Registration from 7:30am to 8:30am)
  The struggle between older Americans and our youth over Medicare is a complete mismatch, but did you know that the employment to population ratio of older workers each year is setting a new record high, while the employment to population ratio for our youth each year is setting record lows? Is that because the elderly are taking the jobs as greeters at Walmart and clerks at McDonald's that might otherwise go to teenagers? Not so much. The competition for jobs is not coming from the elderly, but from robots and microprocessors, that do just what they are told to do, over and over, and work for way below the minimum wage. To get decent jobs, our children need to do things these robots cannot do. What is that now? And what will that be in the decades ahead?
