The web has killed the nine-to-five. So what happens next?
The web is transforming the world of work. The days of the steady nine-to-five job are over, and workers around the world are able to find and sell work online.
The fastest growth is happening in low-wage countries, where talented workers offer high-quality work at cheap rates that are being snapped up by companies in higher-wage countries.
How should we respond to these changes? Are they empowering or exploitative? And what do they mean for the future? The Space commissioned Glasshouse Productions to produce a series of short videos investigating these questions.
