Ensuring Good Future Jobs: Essay Collection Launch
This event happened on 28th November 2019
This Ensuring Good Future Jobs collection represents a coordinated response to the Future Jobs Strategy Report that was published by the Irish government in March 2019. The collection contributes to the renewed discussion of the future of work to understand the drivers behind the difference between what might constitute ‘good work’ and the everyday reality.
The collection features contributions from 15 key social partners in Ireland, including business representatives, academics, the trade union movement and wider civil society. Their essays describe the challenges faced by workers in different sectors and from different backgrounds in Ireland today, consider what good quality future jobs might look like for these workers, and outline what policies and practical changes may be needed to achieve this.
