After a glance into the recent history of the impact of the computer on unemployment it becomes quite easy to see how the technology has changed where people work, how they work or if they work at all. This brief overview examines some of the basic questions asked a number of years ago in this area. It concludes that the problems of employment are complex. The author reviews characteristics and early classifications of workers who were displaced by technology. The problems identified some 30 or 40 years ago continue today. The brief overview concludes with a discussion of an entirely new set of circumstances thrust on today’s worker when an organization refuses to automate, displaces workers and moves offshore.
