Future Jobs Report Will Look Very Different at Robots Increase in Workforce

(CNBC)  The jobs report may look very different as the number of robots increase. Automation and robotics is already changing the US workplace, and we could be looking at dramatically different numbers each month in the future when the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases its non-farm payroll data.
Forrester predicts 10 million jobs will be lost as a direct result of the robotic revolution. While the shift will come with a new wave of hiring (it estimates 15 million), automation and robotics will eliminate 25 million. Put another way: one new job will be created for every 15 lost.
