In this piece, Dr. Shoss outlines the prevalence, experience, and consequences of job insecurity. Dr. Shoss highlights the role job insecurity plays as a stressor in the modern workforce. She suggests that specific subsets of workers (i.e., less educated workers, African American employees, or, counterintuitively, the most desirable workers) are particularly susceptible to this stressor in the modern workforce. Specifically, Dr. Shoss notes aspects of globalization and technology, such as automation, artificial intelligence, climate displaced workers, and global political climate, that have shifted the stage of the modern workforce. She further links these changes to individual behavior, as well as organizational, political, and economic systems.
