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.


Spain came ahead of Britain, the US, Ireland, France and Belgium in terms of jobs at risk of change or disappearance. The OECD average was around 45 per cent.
