AI replacing jobs will impact one gender more than the other

The future is great — for men.

OpenAI just released a list of jobs that are the most, and the least, at risk of being replaced by AI, shown below. Do you see anything special?

Here’s the ratio of men and women for all of these:

All of the safest jobs are manual blue-collar jobs, which are 90%+ dominated by men. All of the most at risks jobs are white-collar ones, which are 60% dominated by women.

This accentuates an ongoing trend where blue-collar jobs, which used to be the least desirable jobs in society, are now the most in-demand and the best paying. Whereas the white collar jobs, which used to be the most desirable, are now going down the drain.

And it looks like those safe, high-paying jobs in the age of AI will be dominated by men — once again.

PS: According to the paper, my job is one of the most at-risk, with 100% exposure to AI.
