Moderated by Jesse Greene, Executive in Residence and Senior Fellow at the Richman Center
The recession is ending but unemployment remains high. Part time jobs, consulting assignments and other temporary forms of employment are growing. The structure of work in the US is changing. Long term positions with one employer are declining and employees can expect to have many employers over their careers. What are the implications for business, labor and society in general? What is driving this change? Is technology improving productivity but reducing the number of jobs available? Is the shift to knowledge work from manufacturing creating fundamental change? Can worker training get people back to work and who will pay for this? Our experts will explore these questions, and enlighten us with their experience and knowledge of the structure of work in the US and its direction. Find out what it means to you!
Please join us for a probing dialogue.
