It seems like the workers of yesteryear worked at their jobs for many years, maybe their entire career. They did this mainly because of loyalty. They were loyal to the company and the company was loyal to them.
Today, however, it seems like workers are stuck in their jobs with no escape. They want to leave but cannot. They are not loyal to the company and they know the company is not loyal to them.
I guess that is why many people only work in one place for around five years before moving on. People have jobs, not careers. Companies have workers, not dedicated employees.
Just my thoughts. What about yours?
