With so much technology readily available and the tendency of many professionals to freelance, employers will be able to easily find replacements for the long-term employment commitment that's becoming a burden on many companies.
By 2020 more than 50% of the employees in the USA will be replaced with freelancers.
Even if employers decide to hire, pretty soon every employer will has access to thousands of employees that will hit the ground ready to do the job. The competition will be cut throat.
