A job guarantee for Scotland?

With the rise of AI and casualised work, and the drive to transition away from polluting industries, the ability people have to keep themselves employed has never been less secure. Should Scotland respond by instituting a job guarantee? This event brings together a set of internationally renowned academics as well as some of the brightest thinkers from Scottish politics and advocacy to debate the merits of such a move.
