Couldn't attend in person? Listen to the broadcast recording of this event.
With the rise of AI, automation and the gig economy, everyone is trying to forecast the future of work. But perhaps a more urgent topic is the future value of a worker. Here in the Bay Area, a stark wage gap is causing a reckoning that’s being felt across the region. Is a lasting solution simply a matter of implementing a higher minimum wage, adopting sustainable hiring practices or providing a universal basic income? Or is the problem systemic and in need of more radical change? In part two of a three-part series, we’ll discuss the value of work and its impacts on the Bay Area of tomorrow. Co-presented by KQED.
