Summary, etc.: Since the Great Recession of 2007-2009, America's work landscape has changed dramatically. We're living in an age of rapid disruption where we can barely adjust to one new reality before a "new" new reality comes along. So how are we supposed to work fulfilling, stable jobs that also cover our monthly expenses? Chideya explores the landscape of employment in America, and provides a self-diagnostic tool to help you find your work/life "sweet spot."
