When you pair that with an industry stagnation, this is recipe for ‘disaster’ in the making because you will have to literally ‘fight’ to keep your job and accept to take less salary because there are people who don’t mind taking less money for their work even if they are more experienced or qualified. In the end, everyone (workers in particular) is frustrated. What are the other options anyway?
