Fewer Jobs For Life
A job for life is were you worked there all your life until you retired. But now your not likely to have a job for life and it was mainly car manufactures, coal mines, steel manufactures and rail way works that you used to work for life. Now you have to move around looking for jobs.
Increased Use Of Technology In the Workplace
Most jobs now require you to have basic IT skills there are only a couple of jobs that don't. So they have now started teaching coding to primary schools. Now that Technology is improving most of jobs are done by machines.
Better/Higher level qualifications needed by employers
If you don't have Maths and English C you might not get a job because some require you to have a certain grade. You could go to college and take English and Maths but if you don't you will end up with a very low payed job
Increase in the older population not wanting to retire
If older people don't want to retire then the younger generation will find it harder to get a job or find work
Increase in service industries
Lots of people don't have full time jobs now. They are mostly part time like catering

Zero hours contracts
A zero hour contract means you may lose your job at any time and your not likely to get any work which is not good if you have a mortgage to pay or maybe a family
You will have to ensure their skills and knowledge is constantly updated who will pay for this?
If you work in the IT industry you will have to train to get use to the new software. Which means you have to pay for it and maybe the software is £600 and if you don't buy it you might end up getting fired because you don't know what to do with the new software
You might not have a lifelong plan anymore Does that matter?
It does matter because you might have to move out of York to get a new job and move away from your family and friends
You might have to be more flexible how would you feel about a zero hour contract?
I would feel angry because you don't know if your going to get work or you might even end up getting fired and it's not good if you don't get work because you might have to pay for a phone contract or bills
You might even have to consider moving away or even abroad how do you feel about this?
I would feel angry because your losing everything, your leaving your friends and family just to go abroad and you will have to come other for holidays which might cost a lot of money and you might not be able to afford it
You may have to consider doing an apprenticeship instead of further studying or university to save costs does this matter?
No because you can put money to a side and safe up then go to university or stay for further studying and pay of the studying bit by bit and go to university in a couple of years
