“The slope of the curve in the change of jobs and skills, when measured against time, has never been so steep,” Art Bilger, WorkingNation Founder and CEO, told Larry Marino on Sunday Morning Newsmakers.

Bilger spoke with Marino on AM 870 The Answer’s show on May 12 about how technology will radically change the job market, where the new jobs will be, how people can reskill, the debate surrounding Universal Basic Income, and work and fulfilling one’s purpose in life.

Bilger explained how he has had his finger on the pulse of these issues for a while now. His connections and investments in media, new technologies, and the early stages of online education companies culminated in a “eureka moment” at a dinner five years ago with fund managers and corporate executives. It was then he knew he needed to create WorkingNation to educate people on the issues and solutions surrounding the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Since its founding in 2016, WorkingNation has been hot on the trail of the future of work issue. Bilger shared some of what we’ve learned, so far, with Marino in the interview below.
