Corporate Resource Services' Board Member James Altucher Interviewed by Yahoo Finance on the Future of Employment
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Corporate Resource Services, Inc. (OTCBB: CRRS), a diversified staffing, recruiting, and consulting services firm providing managed services and trained employees in the areas of Insurance, Information Technology, Accounting, Legal, Engineering, Science, Healthcare, Life Sciences, Creative Services, Hospitality, Retail, General Business and Light Industrial work, today announced that James Altucher, a member of its Board of Directors, was interviewed by Yahoo Finance this past Thursday and discussed the future of the employment and "Why You Should Quit Your Job Now."
According to recent reports, more than 12 million Americans are jobless and 40% of these individuals have been out of work for more than six months. Overall, the U.S. economy may be improving, but many Americans still cannot find a job. This trend will only continue in the foreseeable future says James Altucher. The author and venture capitalist tells Aaron Task of The Daily Ticker that the U.S. is moving toward an "employee-less society."
"If you're just sitting still, shuffling paper, they're going to fire you," he argues. "Cubicles have become commodities. You're like the walking dead if you have a job." According to Altucher, businesses used the 2008 financial crisis as an excuse to get rid of "dead wood" and the firing trend hasn't stopped. Companies no longer show loyalty to employees. They're more interested in boosting profits and revenue - which means letting go of expensive staff employees (due to health care benefits, 401k contributions and more) and replacing them with cheaper temp employees. Altucher says this situation is happening in every sector of the economy.
"If you're stuck in a cubicle you have a target on your back...the CEO is looking to cut you out," he declares. "Temp staffing is sweeping the nation."
