Abstract
The article presents the problem of the role of labor markets under the conditions of the transition to 4.0 economy on a scale of a Russian megalopolis. The principal feature of the Industry 4.0 is the situation when regardless of the priorities of industrial policies by the main recipients of dividends revolutions become suppliers of intellectual or physical capital. The authors analyze the social and professional characteristics of labor migrants arriving to Ekaterinburg from Central Asia, using the statistical data and the results of the sociological study. The authors come to a conclusion that the labor migrants from Central Asia in the territory of Russia in general and the Ural megalopolis in particular, being in-demand mainly in the sphere of menial work and in the extensively developing economic sectors, are not motivated and do not have real opportunities to expand professional skills necessary in the context of the Russian economy, which is now following the path of forming the Industry 4.0.
