He also writes about the world of work for Fortune magazine online. Why is a job that offers affordable insurance plans, decent pay, good benefits, and a retirement plan so hard to find? In Rick Wartzman’s book The End of Loyalty: The Rise and Fall of Good Jobs in America, he shows how big businesses once took responsibility for their worker’s benefits, pay, and job security, and how times have changed since then. Now college students entering the workforce can expect to find contract work, outsourcing, and should expect to retire at a much older age – if they can at all.
