Episode 2-4 of Essential Work: Exploring the Past, Present, and Future of Jobs, brought to you by the Battle of Homestead Foundation.

Host Nathan Ruggles discusses the book The End of Jobs: The Rise of On-Demand Workers and Agile Corporations with author Jeff Wald. A best-selling writer, tech entrepreneur, angel investor, founder of WorkMarket and Spinback, Jeff examines how companies and workers reacted to the last three industrial revolutions. They review this history of work and his analysis of how it has led to the current state of the labor market, along with how workers, companies and societies might respond to the coming Rise of the Robots.
