The new reality of the modern workweek is starting to be felt in the city of Philadelphia, where the majority of the city's employees are expected to work at least two full days a week.The new workday is expected to come into effect in Philadelphia on Jan. 1, and it's going to have a profound impact on the lives of many people.Here are five reasons why some people are embracing this change.1.It gi...
I’ve had to quit my job as a software developer to pursue a career in shadow work.
The reason: The digital world is increasingly threatening my ability to do my job.
The internet is an enormous threat.
I’ve lost my job and I can’t even get a mortgage.
I don’t have the skills needed to run a company, and I don: my skills are already obsolete.
“In the digital world, I have to stop working for someone else and just work on my own,” said Tod Karka, a 37-year-old software developer in Seattle.
“You can’t just go back to your job and expect that your job will survive and you’ll have all these things.
I can only do one thing: run a business.
I’m not really qualified to be a business owner, or even a software engineer, so I just need to focus on my craft.
That is it.”
In many ways, Karkas work is actually quite easy: You can just spend a few hours a week working from home, which he does in his spare time, but most people are better off working from a job in the office.
That means most people can’t afford to go to their local coffee shop, or go out for dinner with friends.
The internet has also made it more difficult to find work in Seattle, which has a higher percentage of tech workers than anywhere else in the US, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But the digital job market is still a relatively small one, with only about 1 in 5 full-time US workers being employed by the internet service industry.
In the past year, the internet has forced many of those people to go back into the office for their work, and the demand for that kind of work has grown exponentially.
And many of them aren’t willing to do it alone.
“I’m not a person who wants to be alone.
I just want to get a decent job, get some stability, have some money, and be able to support myself,” said Karko.
But it’s not just people who want to go into the shadows.
Karkos friends who worked in software companies are starting to find a job, too.
And that’s a big problem.
When the recession hit, many of the tech industry’s brightest people went back to their previous jobs to help support their families.
Now, there’s an alarming shortage of those jobs.
Many of them are part-time jobs, and there’s no way to get into the tech sector at the pace they need to to survive.
“We’re going to have to get rid of the part-timers,” said Peter Grosz, a senior software developer for a major tech company in San Francisco.
This is also a problem for many of Karkocas friends, who were looking for a better-paying job, and were worried about finding one.
But they’re not going back to work for Uber, Facebook, or Google, either.
They’re going back into work for the very companies that are ruining their lives.
Karka said he has to think about the future of the internet.
“I want to work in an environment where people can come in and say ‘I’m doing this because I’m tired of being unemployed.
I want to be able have a job,'” he said.
If you’re looking for work right now, you’re going in the wrong direction.
It’s time to rethink how the world works, and we need to start thinking about how we’re going see the world change.
