A new report claims Texas workers are the biggest risk of being replaced by robots.

Oxford Economics did a study and it claims robots could take over 20 million manufacturing jobs by 2030.

The researchers say the Lone Star state is one of the most vulnerable states. They also claim robots are cheaper than many human workers.

Oxford Economics says the auto industry used 43% of the robots in the world in 2016.

The study claims Texas, Louisiana, Oregon, Indiana and North Carolina are listed as the most vulnerable states due to all the manufacturing jobs.

Hawaii, the District of Columbia, Nevada, Florida and Vermont are listed as the least vulnerable states.
