From: Psychological reactions to human versus robotic job replacement

Engagement in social comparisons with software versus another worker explains self-threat concerns, thereby driving preferences for human versus robotic replacement (indirect effect: b = −0.455; Z = −2.67; P < 0.01; 95% CI: (−0.85, −0.16)). Mediation was tested by calculating bias-corrected 95% CIs using bootstrapping with 10,000 resamples via the PROCESS macro25. Significance levels: **P < 0.01; ***P < 0.001.
