p49k comments on “Business cancels Yelp advertising contract, negative reviews start pouring in”

It’s possible, but it’s also possible that the owner doesn’t really know if Yelp is actually guilty of anything, and they’re afraid that an investigation would find that the reviews are legitimate, making the owner look bad.

humanrebar comments on “We need to fill 'new collar' jobs that employers demand: IBM's Rometty”

> Maybe it’s called that because your job skills will change so frequently, and your job security is so low that your collar is always “new.”

Well, we need “employment security”, not “job security”. I mean, I like my job, but the important part is that I can be gainfully employed and support my family, not that I can keep this job until I decide to retire.

The article is fluffy, but I am generally for things that help reframe peoples’ expectations about how careers work. We need employees that expect premium salaries from dead-end jobs. And we need employers who are honest with employees when jobs will be eventually phased out. I suspect shipping companies aren’t pitching “we’ll retrain you for the future!” when filling trucker jobs. Software shops seem to be better than most, but they’re hung up on “cool technology” as if the aesthetics are more important than staying away from dead-end, high-risk tech stacks.
