 Talk at Manchester focuses on impact of automation on jobs

Matthew BennettNORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. – We all know that income inequality is on the increase in the United States. What we don’t know for sure is what will happen to jobs and income inequality as automation becomes an even bigger factor.

Is increased unemployment a guarantee? Is the trend of increased inequality sustainable? Before we can begin to offer solutions, one must understand the challenges.

Manchester University senior Matt Bennett will explore these questions and more during “Income Inequality, Automation and Jobs” at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 2, in the upper level of the Jo Young Switzer Center on East Street.

It is free and open to the public.

Bennett is a history major from Wanatah in northwest Indiana.

His presentation is part of the Values, Ideas and the Arts program at Manchester, designed to offer academic credit to undergraduate students who, through the process, gain cultural exposure, artistic experiences and intellectual enrichment. This presentation is part of the VIA Senior Series, which invites MU seniors to propose a topic of their choosing.
