Abstract: We provide comprehensive evidence on the consequences of automation and o shoreability on the labor market career of unemployed workers. Using almost two decades of administrative data for Austria, we find that risk of automation is reducing the job finding probability; a problem which has increased over the past years. We show that this development is associated with increasing re-employment wages and job stability. For workers in occupations at risk of being offshored we find the opposite effect. Our results imply a trade-o between quantity and quality in these jobs. Provided training is in general beneficial for workers in automation-related jobs.
