Juggling Shifts: The Effect of Unpredictable Scheduling on Income Volatility, and Potential Solutions

In the course of EPIC’s investigation of income volatility, variation in workers’ hours and scheduling instability – which is widespread – has been identified as one of the main drivers of the problem.

Many employers, governments, and technology companies have identified scheduling instability – and the income volatility it creates – as problems in need of fixing.

This panel conversation explored the pros and cons of solutions to both scheduling unpredictability and income volatility.
