Labor’s Murray Watt will chair a Senate inquiry that will examine the impact of technologies such as automation and robotics on the Australian labour market, society and the broader economy. Ed Husic, the shadow minister for the future of work and the digital economy, has estimated that these technologies will affect the jobs of some 3.5 million Australians. He has warned that the Coalition is not doing enough to prepare the nation for the impact of technology-driven change.
