Is the death of jobs upon us?
When the U.S. economy continues a five year run of pitifully puny job creation (just 88,000 last month according to the U.S. Department of Labor), and when the Eurozone can’t get below 12% unemployment no how no way, it’s probably time to re-examine the whole idea of exactly what a job is and whether or not the fundamental construct is even viable going forward.
Let’s just skip to the answer: Jobs aren’t a viable construct going forward. The notion that most of us will earn our living in the future through an employee/employer relationship is headed for the scrap heap of economic history. The next two decades will pretty much cleanse us of the sport of waiting for the job creation numbers to come out.
