Innovation Hub: Work, Interrupted


On this episode of Innovation Hub, celebrate Labor Day weekend with a look at how the American workplace and its workers are changing -- for better and for worse.

Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee tell us about how robots are taking over our jobs -- and which ones we should particularly fear. New York Times columnist Tom Friedman weighs in on the future of work conversation, and how we should be better preparing for it. Plus: a look at how much work really goes into making a fledgling start-up succeed. And we get further dialogue on why America might be heading for a 32-hour work week, and the pros and cons that would arise from such a radical transition.
