Why There are So Many 'Bad' Jobs Available

50 years ago, the idea of the "American worker" was probably someone who was employed in manufacturing. Today, the "American work" is someone who's employed in retail. Unfortunately, many of these jobs are low-paying and include very little benefits. And yet, they're also very abundant and easy for people to get. So how did we get here?

The folks over at Vox released a video explaining why there are so many "bad" jobs available in the United States and why it's so hard for people to find "good" ones. There are a number of explanations ranging from the weakening of unions, a trend of pushing people with some education into lower skill jobs to compete with people with very little education and other economic factors.

It's definitely an informative video for this time of year, when stores are hiring tons of people to get through the holiday season, many of whom will be let go as soon as the new year begins.


Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been on the forefront of health and beauty trends for the past couple years and is continuing to pop up everywhere as the market expands and continues to gain momentum. Previously sold by head shops, health food stores, or online retailers, CBD has dramatically entered the mainstream as a health or nutritional supplement, making a splash in the beauty industry as a skin care and cosmetics add-in, as well as in the food industry, garnishing mocktails or lattes for an extra couple bucks each. The health and beauty industries are wont to never miss out on a booming trend, and CBD is no exception.
