HALF of all jobs in the Spanish economy are at risk of being replaced by machines, according to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The OECD found Spain was among 36 developed economies where workers faced the greatest risk from automation.

The organisation found 52 per cent of jobs faced a medium to high risk of “significant” loss or transformation due to automation. A total of 22 per cent face disappearing all together in their current form, according to the OECD.
