This conversation is based on an upcoming PBS documentary series, Future of Work, which explores how the world of work—and the American Dream—is changing. 

Watch Future of Work, a three part series, airing on WXXI & PBS September 1 at 10pm, September 8 at 10pm , and September 15 at 10pm 

The Future of Work initiative—including a three-part PBS series (September 1, 8 & 15, 2021, at 10/9C and streaming on pbs.org), and digital and social media series—explores the monumental changes in the workplace and the impact on workers, employers, educators, students, and communities. Employment is part of the American Dream—will the future provide opportunities for jobs that sustain families and the nation?

Future of Work is part of public media’s American Graduate initiative, made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
