The future of work will not be more flexible because the overwhelming majority is sticking to traditional methods of work.
For instance, in America, the 2019 workforce was 157 million Americans, of that 157 million only 57 million did some type of freelance work.
This means that the overwhelming majority worked conventional 9 to 5 jobs. This will always be the case.
Furthermore, the reason freelance markets were continuing their gradual increase in recent years had to with the growing economy in worldwide markets. However, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to destroy global economies, the increasing stability and strength of the economy is no longer something freelancers can rely on.
For the immediate future, the amount of freelancers isn’t expected to reach its once predicted levels.
The future of work will not be more flexible because the majority of workers are adhering to traditional and conventional jobs.
