It’s a fiction to claim that young people are driving “non-traditional” work arrangements, though admittedly, the more variable and widespread insecure work arrangements are, the better business is for the staffing agencies.

Why not be honest and call these “low-cost labour arrangements?”, which for employers (but not the staffing agencies, which take a cut of the comp.) also equates to lower benefits, pension and termination costs.

I think that if BC is going to publish these types of articles by authors with glaring conflicts of interest, they should also offer space to sociologists or demographers who study labour trends, and draw the correct inferences.
