Job insecurity is a central theme of the 2016 campaign, fueling popular anger about trade deals and immigration.Currently, only 5 percent of occupations can be entirely automated, but 60 percent of occupations could soon see machines doing 30 percent or more of the work.In last February's "Economic Report of the President," they cited research noting that "middle-skill" employees, such as bookkeepers, clerks and assembly line workers have been replaced first, but that "big data and machine learning will soon make it possible to automate many tasks that were difficult to automate in the past".Workers are already reeling from the job implosion we've seen so far. As of March, 51 percent of Americans still thought free trade deals were a good thing, but that was down from 59 percent two years ago.Free trade agreements are supported by 54 percent of women; 55 percent of blacks; 67 percent of young adults between 18 and 29; and 72 percent of Hispanics.
