I think that the labor changes that are happening currently could be possibly beneficial but they could also be very harmful to employees.
The changes that are occurring could be beneficial to the group of younger employees who seem to be more A.D.D. than previous generations. The change allows people to switch jobs more often. This I hope helps people avoid being trapped in a job that they don’t enjoy. Typically in television shows and movies you see the image of a man coming home from work exhausted, his wife asks him how his day was and he describes it as being horrible and he wants to relax and de-stress from his job. By having more freedom to change jobs, it could potentially allow people to lead happier lives. At the same time it could keep people from settling down because they are always looking for something better. Some people may want a job that they love everything about and that kind of job might not necessarily exist so they could spend their entire life switching from job to job searching for something that they will never find.
This change in labor could also be harmful because it would lose employee and employer loyalty. By not having a traditional contract to work for an employer and move up in a company, to only be employed for a certain amount of time or for a certain project could negatively impact relations within the workplace. Because an employee has no job security they may not be against backstabbing or going behind the back of their employer to work with competing companies in order to ensure that they will be receiving a paycheck in the future. It could also cause employers to provide employees with less training and workshops that can help the employee improve their skills because the employer can just replace that person with a more qualified person or somebody who has the skills that they are looking for at any time.
