Future Forward Episode #0092 / The Labor Day Edition

Today – a deep dive into the world of Labor. Workers. Jobs. and How Robots Could Change EVERYTHING. I’m Alexa Scordato and this is Future Forward. Then, as Robots loom on the horizon One Politician says he has a plan. Then, we’ll go even further – what if Robot’s ‘Replace’ politicians?
