New paradigm of work

I spoke to a security guard at the airport.

TKL - Are you from Singapore?
Guard - Yes.
TKL - Do you work full time?
Guard - Part time
TKL - How many days a week do you work?
Guard - 5 days.
TKL - That is like full time!
Guard - I have flexibility. If I want to stop work for a while, e.g, to go on holiday, I am allowed to.

This is the new paradigm of work. There is flexibility for the worker and the employer. If the employer does not need the worker, there is no work to be done.

The worker needs to have savings to tide over the period where the work is reduced.
