It concludes that 17.1 million Americans may need to switch occupations by the end of the decade—up from 13.4 million before the pandemic. Similar increases in displacement were found in the other advanced economies.u003c/p> u003cp>The pandemic also has made clear which occupations will be hardest hit by the transition. The shift to e-commerce will be a heavy blow to those involved in consumer sales and service; the shift to remote work will accelerate the decline in office support. Food service and warehouse work also will take a heavy hit. “It’s not just that more people will need to change occupations,” says Susan Lund, one of the leaders of the Institute, “it is that the jump they will need to make from the old job to the new job is even bigger.” Moreover, the research shows a disproportionate number of those affected will be women and minorities.u003c/p> u003cp>The upshot: the next decade demands a massive effort by business and government to upskill the workforce and create new training programs for those who are displaced, in order to avoid continued increases in inequality. “Companies need to step up their investment in redeploying workers and creating alternative career pathways,” Lund says. “And it is also going to take investment from educational institutions and government.” One more thing to add to an already crowded 2021 agenda.  u003c/p> u003cp>You can read the full report u003ca href="https://www.mckinsey.com/featured-insights/future-of-work/the-future-of-work-after-covid-19">hereu003c/a>.

Google essentially gave in, announcing a multi-year licensing deal with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, which dominates the Australian media landscape. Facebook, conversely, stopped allowing Australians to share news on its platform—and messed up bigtime, blocking “information about COVID-19 vaccinations, the government Bureau of Meteorology, satire websites, and even Facebook’s own Facebook page.” u003cem>u003ca href="https://fortune.com/2021/02/18/facebook-bans-news-australia-google-deal/">Fortuneu003c/a>u003c/em>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cstrong>Diversity datau003c/strong>u003c/p>nu003cp>The employer-review site Glassdoor has started disclosing race and gender data, allowing users to analyze salary data based on those metrics, and to see how people from different groups rate companies on their workplace culture and promotional opportunities. u003cem>u003ca href="https://fortune.com/2021/02/18/glassdoor-employee-employer-reviews-by-race-agender/">Fortuneu003c/a>u003c/em>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cstrong>Chip subsidiesu003c/strong>u003c/p>nu003cp>American automakers, medical device makers and other manufacturers are lobbying the White House to provide subsidies for the construction of new chip factories, so they can go about their business without semiconductor shortages of the sort we’re currently seeing.
