The Future of Wellbeing in an Automated World

What about us Humans?
May 27, 2022

This season of Better Life Lab, we’ve been taking a close look at work stress and the future of work and wellbeing.

Parts of the American economy are looking tough for many workers — even “dystopian". People are quitting their jobs at record rates.

We know what many of the problems are. Yet the fixes are not so simple. So on this closing episode of our fourth season, we ask: Are bad jobs an inherent part of the workplace — or can we actually do what it takes to make the jobs of the future good jobs, big enough to support real human life for all of us?
