Cities are essential centres for work. But work is changing rapidly: jobs for many are insecure; flat-lining productivity is failing to promote growth; there are fears that the robots will take all the jobs. What is the future of work in cities? What can city leaders do to promote good work? Our panellists (Kate Bell, James Bloodworth, Gavin Kelly and Anthony Painter) examine work trends, low-pay, universal basic income and the evidence base for the future of work, among other issues.
