>From Dan Miller’s latest newsletter:
Experts predict that by 2006 only 50% of American workers will be ”employees.” The rest will be temps, consultants, contract workers, independent contractors, entrepreneurs, etc.
Related note from The Dilbert Future by Scott Adams – ”In the future, most people’s jobs will involve scrambling around like frightened chipmunks trying to find the next paycheck in an endless string of unrelated short-term jobs. But since ”Frightened Chipmunk” doesn’t look very impressive on a business card, people will call themselves entrepreneurs, consultants, and independent contractors.”
