Can the sharing economy provide good jobs?
The Wall Street Journal
Startups like Uber, TaskRabbit and Handy are transforming the way consumers access goods and services by matching people who need something—a driver, a housecleaner or a handyman, for example — with providers willing to supply it. It’s called the sharing economy, and some 7 percent of U.S. adults say they are working on sharing platforms, according to a PricewaterhouseCoopers survey, with many more likely to follow, attracted by the idea of a job with flexible hours and the chance to be their own boss.

Pew Research
More than one-in-three American workers today are Millennials (adults ages 18 to 34 in 2015), and this year they surpassed Generation X to become the largest share of the American workforce, according to new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. This milestone occurred in the first quarter of 2015, as the 53.5 million-strong Millennial workforce has risen rapidly. The Millennial labor force had last year surpassed that of the Baby Boom, which has declined as Boomers retire.

Is the future of work really the 'jobbatical'?
CityLab
Tried of working from home? You could change up your coffee shop routine. Or you could ditch your current grind entirely and go program apps in Jakarta, Bali or Barcelona. That’s the premise of Jobbatical, a new site that connects wanderlust-stricken workers with employers looking to hire people for short-term gigs. In the intro video, founder Karoli Hindriks explains, “This is where the world is headed — working on an on-demand basis.” That does seem to be true. In many industries, the traditional office model has already been shaken up. Instead of embarking on draining commutes, employees are telecommuting; instead of hiring a robust long-term staff, managers hire a steady rotation of specialized temp workers to tackle specific projects.
