The Future of Work: How will your Grandkids make a Living?
Thousands of U.S. retail jobs have been lost due to the popularity of online retailers such as Amazon. Future developments in robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and other technology will also cause job loss and major changes in the workplace. In addition, changing corporate structures, globalization, and the “gig economy” (e.g. Uber), will impact our work and how we will be doing it. The dedicated worker, working for a single company, with long-term job security, is fast disappearing. How will companies change to address technological advances and global challenges? What changes are likely for low-wage jobs, and are “guaranteed minimum incomes” advisable? What are the best ways to prepare people for jobs of the future? Will your grandchildren find work, and, if so, what will their workplaces be like?
