Climate change, an increasingly "on demand" (gig) economy, artificial intelligence and other rapidly advancing technologies of control and surveillance, alongside disruptions to the (neo)liberal geopolitical order, complicate the terrain on which we fight for the just transition. But these factors do not fundamentally change some of the solutions that would do the trick.
