Economic vulnerability for working class women in tech supply chains.

AI Impact(s)

Economic harm and inequity

There are approximately 190 million women working in global supply chains. While their jobs may offer women some economic independence, if social standards go unmanaged, the reality can include low wages, excessive hours, unsafe conditions, and sexual harassment. AI's promise to eliminate labor could eliminate this hard-earned economic freedom and exacerbate poor working conditions. Experts have predicted that AI will hollow out the middle of the labor force, so that only very high skilled and low skilled jobs remain.
