“The future of work is not precarization but polarization”
Work is always undergoing changes; the big turning point currently is polarization, the ever-growing divide between people in the labor market. Precarization is not actually the prevailing phenomenon, and, in fact, most workers remain in stable, full-time jobs.
– For some, careers become fragmented, for others they do not. For instance, over 90 percent of highly educated technology industry employees have stable, full-time jobs. For them, the change does not concern their working career but the content of their work, says Satu Ojala postdoctoral research fellow at Tampere University.
