In This Episode

When it comes to jobs, it’s been a year and a half of whiplash. From plunging unemployment and kitchen table workstations to worker shortages and record numbers of people quitting the workforce altogether. What will the future hold? Josh Robin talks with Julia Pollak, labor economist at ZipRecruiter, about why many workers will never return to the office, whether employers are now more likely to heed calls for work-life balance, which industries will thrive in this new reality, and why schmoozing with the boss may be less common down the road. Plus, Josh debunks a past prediction about the future of work.
