By necessity or by choice this is defining the new job-paradigm in the US – Economy:
Everywhere we look, we can see the U.S. workforce undergoing a massive change. No longer do we work at the same company for 25 years, waiting for the gold watch, expecting the benefits and security that come with full-time employment. We’re no longer simply lawyers, or photographers, or writers. Instead, we’re part-time lawyers-cum- amateur photographers who write on the side.
Economies are so interconnected these days that changes in the job-market in the US immediately modify job patterns at least in the formal economies of developing countries.
