Unemployment in America is headline news in the U.S. As high as it is, Vinay Singh has real concerns that the actual rate of unemployment is significantly underreported. He questions how unemployment is tracked and more importantly that it misses the dark side of income inequality, social inequality, and ageism - exacerbated by under-employment, wage suppression, age discrimination and CEO compensation. He’s a passionate student and user of technology but concedes humans need to learn how to apply technology in a more human way. He implores recruiters and HR to stop asking inane and irrelevant interview questions (such as “if you were the first human on Mars, what would you do?”) and urges both companies and workers to take this pandemic crisis to reskill and upskill. Singh is the author of the Amazon best selling book “Your Future in Pieces.”
