Careers Are Dead. Welcome To Your Low-Wage, Temp Work Future
Finally, some statistics to prove the stereotypes right.
According to a recent survey from Millennial Branding and Payscale, Millenials really are most likely to be employed in service industry jobs. So, all those jokes about post-graduation latte pouring and t-shirt folding haven’t been in vain. And while it might be comforting to think of these jobs as necessary way stations on the path to an upwardly mobile future – especially if you’re someone who holds one – there’s mounting evidence that the American labor market may never return to its pre-recession composition.
The future is already here and it brings with it low-wage temporary or contract work as a way of life.
