For many Australians, rapid progress in artificial intelligence, robotics and automation is a growing anxiety. What will it mean for jobs? What will it mean for their kids' futures? More broadly, what will it mean for equality in this country?

Jim Chalmers and Mike Quigley believe that bursts in technology need not result in bursts of inequality, that we can combine technological change with the fair go. But first we need to understand what's happening to work, and what's likely to happen.

This is a timely, informative and authoritative book about the changing face of work, and how best to approach it - at both a personal and a political level.

Publisher's note- 'Jim and Mike have written an essential guide to the future of work in Australia as the wave of automation rolls in. Their crisp book combines expertise with a sense of social justice, a rare and useful mix.'
