“The Last Job On Earth” Imagines A Fully Automated Future
While we can’t predict the future, we can imagine a world without work – one where those who own the tech get rich from it and everyone else ekes out a living, propped up by an increasingly fragile state. Meet Alice, holder of the last recognizable job on Earth, trying to make sense of her role in an automated world.
Machines could take 50% of our jobs in the next 30 years, according to scientists.
The Guardian‘s Paul Mason introduces the film in, Automation May Mean a Post-Work Society But We Shouldn’t Be Afraid.
