The robots are coming for our jobs, and Wall Street is getting a little nervous. A recent survey of 1000 financial professionals conducted by LinkedIn, the networking site, found that 25% of Wall Streeters are worried their job could be jeopardized by automation. Retail bankers are the most fearful with a third of respondents saying they view automation as a threat, according to a report highlighting the survey's results. It stands to reason that some folks are nervous, as Wall Street firms look to automate their infrastructure to cut jobs.
