McKinsey study just released shows lawyers will not be overly impacted by AI. However, there will certainly be impacts in other areas of the workforce that need to be addressed.

The study says 12 million workers in the US will have to change jobs not because they want to, but because they have to. Roughly 9 million of them will have to find new jobs in new industries altogether.

Lower-wage workers are expected to be most impacted by these changes. The study found that Americans in lower wage jobs are up to 14 times more likely to need to change occupations by 2030. 75% of the projected declines in job levels are in four categories: office support, customer service and sales, food services, and production work (e.g. manufacturing).

It is not all doom & gloom, the study also found that the demand for higher-wage professions in industries like healthcare, tech, and transportation is likely to grow considerably moving forward.
