Ep58 – the Future of Work in Australia.

Huge episode this episode. First up we look at the Aged Care Royal Commission and the very convenient timing of the report getting released.

Then in a rough theme we look at the future of work in Australia, first by looking at Labor’s IR policies (shock horror: minimum wages and sick leave) and then we chat to political economist Ben Spies-Butcher about universal basic income – and how the pandemic and jobkeeper may have given us a hint at what the future in Australia could look like! The extended chat with Ben is up in the version of the episode on Sanspants Plus and is definitely worth checking out.

Also speaking of bonus stuff, here’s an outtake we didn’t have time for this week: Brisbane wins the 2032 Olympics!
