Piers Fawkes: Tomorrow’s Future of Work Today
PSFK founder predicts a massive structural shift will impact the future of work in 2016
As we move into a year of political rhetoric , a negative spotlight will likely be shone on companies like Uber, Alfred and Airbnb — firms that allow people from all sorts of backgrounds to generate income from a variety of means. Politicians in 2016 will criticize the sharing economy companies without realizing or admitting that those firms are not really fueling a massive economic and societal change but are rather responding to it. Presidential hopefuls will also likely ignore the massive structural shift in the job market that will have a direct impact on the economy in the United States and around the world.
