“Say Goodbye To Constant Work: The Future Of Freelancing”

laitman_430Research (nationalt): “One fifth of the jobs created in the United States after the crisis are temporary jobs. And half of those who have been working [part-time jobs] are earning just over minimum wage. The new social class is characterized by insecure employment … and social scientists have long warned that the famous, affluent American middle class is shrinking. The good, secure jobs are not coming back…

“What characterizes the new work … is that [a person] is constantly forced to be looking for the next job, the next fixed-term, the next opportunity to support themselves and their family for a time.

“’It’s a whole new way to perceive what a job is. These are not jobs, as we know them. It is short-term employment; you have a job today, but maybe nothing tomorrow or the day after. And the time in which you are seeking a new job, you are not paid. A person looks and looks, becoming more and more frustrated. Some workers are by nature more ahead of the curve, entrepreneurial types, hustler types. And they seem to perform better than others in the new job market. They are very confident and trained while those who are more reticent, silent types who just want to do a job and are good at it, lose out because it is not their natural inclination to constantly have to sell themselves,’ said Steven Hill, author of a new book on the topic.

“Companies that switched from permanent employment to contract workers can, according to studies, reduce their labor costs by 30 percent or more because they are no longer responsible for fitting a safety net for employees. Many theories of economics spurred enthusiastic talks about this new hyper efficiency, where companies only pay for the labor.”

My Comment: The State will need to find the means that will ensure every citizen with a necessary subsistence level. In any case, it will bring greater uniformity of society in which most of the population will receive supplementary income from the State.

So we are getting closer to a society of equals. It will be possible to help people cooperate and provide them with inner fulfillment through education. So, gradually social change will occur and people will need only what is necessary for their livelihood, and after that under the influence of education, their fulfillment will be from the opening of the upper world.
