The future of work seems to be developing into a future without it. Are we,who still believe in the exchange of labor for pay,even prepared for such a scenario? The exchange of labor for pay is dead. Long live labor. A promising outlook if it were not for the political classes constantly fishing for votes by proclaiming full employment as the goal while preventing new forms of work from developing.
