The use of robots is on the rise.
According to a new report from Oxford Economics, machines could take over 20 million manufacturing jobs around the world in the next decade.
The report says robots could displace about 8.5 percent of the global manufacturing workforce.
Robots are becoming cheaper than many human workers, in part because of the cheaper cost of machines.
Oxford Economics warns a potential downside of automation is that it could increase income inequality.
In the US they say Oregon, Louisiana, Texas, Indiana and North Carolina are the most vulnerable.
That’s because those states are reliant on manufacturing jobs that could disappear because of robots.
