The pandemic has profoundly changed our working lives. Millions have lost their jobs; others have had no choice but to continue working at great risk to their health. Many more have shouldered extra unpaid labour such as childcare.
Work has also been redefined. Some workers are defined as 'essential' – but most of them are among the lowest-paid in our societies.

Amid the crisis, there has been a rise in interest in radical ideas, from four-day weeks to universal basic income.
Join openDemocracy at 5pm UK time/6pm CET on 4 June as we discuss whether the pandemic might finally be a moment for challenging our reliance on work.
