    Sadly, the days of being a professional are just about over in the U.S. and we are all worse off for it.

    Maybe Caulfield will grow up to be a songwriter, too. A short attention span seems to be a prerequisite for a creative mind!

    Hey, look at the shiny thing. Oh, and there’s one over there, and there and there…and over there! Hey, We started out in Africa, how did we get to Australia? Shiny things…..ADD people populated the planet! Suck it normal people!…..

    Working for an ADD boss is like working for an Asshole!

    Odd coincidence of this strip with Reality Check. Is there a hidden connection?

    Perhaps. As one astute observer of humanity noted once, you make something (e.g full-time employment) more expensive and people will tend to want to buy less of it.

    But that will make the unemployment rate look low.

    Ah, yes, our glorious information-age technological civilization now allows, encourages, even demands that we constantly flit from one interest to another. Meanwhile (and I speak from experience here, having helped to create that technology), creating, evolving and maintaining that technological civilization requires the ability to focus intensely on a single subject for an extended period. Anybody see a slight disconnect here?
    The next fifty years or so are gonna be very interesting indeed.

    Yep. There used to be a time not long ago when the ability to do hard physical labor was valued. Now you have to be able to absorb knowledge and constantly learn new skills.

    I’ve been in my industry 30 years. I have done multiple things as my career has grown. Those who preceded me did the same thing. This is not new to professions. One starts at an entry level, finds the skills and interests that are mutually beneficial and pursues them.

    Right on, rsheve! Job security and benefits should only be an entitlement of the 1%! And I bet you wonder why there’s rioting in the streets!
