According to a new study by Future Advocacy, one in five jobs across the parliamentary constituencies in the U.K. are likely to be affected by an imminent automation revolution.

Surprisingly, the same report revealed that a meager 2% of the surveyed people are worried by the prospect of being replaced by a machine, notes The Guardian.

The report, which is the first attempt to quantify the impact of automation at local level, seeks to encourage British MPs to shift focus to a critical issue and respond to “the future of work.”
