Pre­car­i­ous em­ploy­ment doesn’t pro­duce en­gaged work­ers

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - RE: Pre­car­i­ous Em­ploy­ment Takes Toll on Mil­len­ni­als (Oct. 4)

There’s some­thing apro­pos about MacMaster re­searchers pre­par­ing a study on pre­car­i­ous em­ploy­ment among mil­len­ni­als.

Large, in­creas­ingly profit-driven uni­ver­si­ties have long been at the fore­front of pre­car­i­ous con­tract em­ploy­ment through the wide­spread use of ses­sion­als and other con­tracted in­struc­tors.

Hope­fully, fur­ther stud­ies will re­veal the sim­ple truth that com­pa­nies don’t pro­duce en­gaged, loyal work­ers who can think out­side of the box by keep­ing their em­ploy­ees in a state of in­se­cu­rity and fear. Ru­fus Hickok, Hamilton
