Second, third jobs become the new normal – Michael West

Who remembers when one wage supported a family of 4 living in their own yes their own suburban home. Work today is rapidly being redefined so as not to be defined seen as modern-day slavery. So much so a family of 4 is increasingly in debt and can’t any longer support themselves on 2 wages in some cases more. Who no longer will ever dream of owning their own home and needing to work 2 or 3 jobs without benefits. We are redefining their circumstance as the new “norm” and not slavery.

Workers are taking advantage of the competitive labour market to make some extra cash, with 900,000 people working two or more jobs.
