The Future of Work in Australia

Then we chat to political economist Ben Spies-Butcher, head of sociology at Macquarie University about a recent study he did into Universal Basic Income (UBI) in Australia and how the pandemic may have given us a glimpse of what the future could look like in regards to free money!At the top of the show we look at the Royal Commission into Aged Care which dropped its final report this week and the opportune timing of its release.Follow Ben Spies-Butcher on twitter at twitter.com/bspiesbutcherNews Fighters is a comedic look at the week in Australian news, media and political hypocrisy, hosted by ex-Tonightly and Chaser editor Dylan Behan. Watch this episode on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/zSeLqqd3wMMTo support the show and get exclusive ad-free, extended and bonus episodes, become a member of Sanspants Plus: https://www.sanspantsradio.com/plus/World Wide Website: http://www.newsfighters.comFollow us on twitter at https://twitter.com/NewsfightersPodLike us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsFightersEmail: podcast@newsfighters.comBuy us a coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/newsfightersBuy merch:: https://www.redbubble.com/people/dylabdesigns Subscribe:Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/2Uh1kmZSpotify: https://sptfy.com/1fkQGoogle Podcasts: http://bit.ly/2YRpZ08Pocketcasts: http://bit.ly/2PHbVT2Stitcher: http://bit.ly/2UrV5wfYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/newsfighters  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
