    Baku. 13 April. REPORT.AZ/ The increase in one robot for every 1000 employees in the industrial economy cuts wages in the country by 0.25-0.5% and reduces economically active population by 0.18-0.34%. Report informs citing the Kommersant newspaper it is stated in “sobering” study from Daron Acemoglu of M.I.T. and Pascual Restrepo of Boston University, “Robots and Jobs: Evidence from US Labor Markets” published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

    They said that robotization prosess in US is behind the Eurozone. The research covers impact of automation on labor market during 1997-2016. According to International Federationof Robotics (IFR), at present 1,15-1,17 mln robots are working around the world. 39% of them operate in car industry, 19% in electronics, 18% in metallurgical and chemical industries. Research notes that, since 1993 robots in US dismissed about 360-670 thousand people from job. Economists, scientists believe that robots will impede the growth of wages.
