Herald on the Future of Work

Isaac Davidson at the New Zealand Herald has published an article on the work of the Future of Work Commission under the titleĀ Expect radical changes to economic policy, says Robertson. He writes:

Grant Robertson says New Zealanders can expect a radical shift in the Labour Party's economic policy ahead of the 2017 election as his party looks to prepare workers for huge changes in the labour market in coming decades.

Mr Robertson is in Paris for the OECD's Future of Work Forum, where politicians, businesspeople and unions are discussing how to adapt to the digital economy and the increasing casualisation of the workforce.

The shadow finance and employment minister is seeking ideas for his Future of Work Commission, a two-year project which will inform Labour's new economic development policies.

"If we look ahead two decades, there will be enormous change," he told the Herald from Paris. "Up to half of the jobs in the economy today won't be there."
