Due to institutionalization and expansion, employers are looking for more contractual work or temporary employment form the employees and are avoiding giving them full time permanent jobs.

Stable employment and good jobs are being eroded at a frightening rate For example, content writer jobs are precarious because of its temporary nature and one cannot get assurance of job security from this job due to its unstable nature. When job is contractual and do not assure me stable earnings. But, on a positive note, the experience one gains from a content writer job is immensely good however precarious the work nature is.
