“I’m not unusual. I’ve been on zero-hours contracts for some time and it has finally got to me. I’m tired of thinking I’ve secured a future for me and my child, tired of thinking I won’t have to worry about whether we both eat or whether we have heating, tired of worrying how we will cope if my child loses their school coat.[…]

Labor Force Participation: Recent Developments and Future Prospects:

America’s labor force is shrinking as the “Baby Boom” generation ages out. But projected patterns, decreasing availability of middle-skill (those for undergrad degree holders) jobs and increasing competition for low-skill jobs (like burger-flipping) shows that the baby boomers’ departure from the workforce is likely a scorched earth affair.
