Job displacement linked to technological innovation or international trade is hardly a new phenomenon, nor is the instability that seasonal or young workers routinely face in the labour market. But the impact of the so-called “fourth industrial revolution” on the nature of work is much broader. Careers are becoming a patchwork of impermanent contracts and “gigs,” which often do not come with the benefits associated with long-term employment.
