Black and Hispanic workers are more concerned about how they will be impacted by new technology in the workplace than white or Asian workers, according to a survey of 2,000 workers.

The survey, whose data was analyzed by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, also found that Black and Hispanic workers were less likely to say they saw efficiency gains from new technology than their white or Asian counterparts.

Black and Hispanic employees also showed more support than Asian or white workers for a guaranteed basic income for people displaced by new technology.

Respondents of all races agreed the federal government should take a leading role in preparing workers for the changes that come with new technology.
