Lost in Recession, Toll on Underemployed and Underpaid
It sucks to see that companies are decreasing wages and cutting benefits for employees… and worse to see that college students aren’t getting the jobs that they envisioned, aren’t utilizing the skills that they have, and that older adults who have been laid off are competing to get entry level jobs. This is just terrible.
It is no wonder why many young adults in their 20s work at unpaid or low paying internships to gain experience and because that is what they think employers what to see on a resume. Sometimes, by doing so, it is filling in a role that a paid person may do, or for the intern, it may not give them the skills that they would’ve otherwise acquired at typical summer jobs.
