The workforce in the United States has experienced considerable change in the past few years and in the preceding decades.  Technology has been a major factor in significant change for some segments of the workforce.  Other factors of workforce change include global considerations, the objectives of retiring populations, and the workplace values of younger workers.  Financial well-being, Social well-being, and Emotional well-being are just some areas of relevance in workforce studies. 

Some workers are content with their current work assignments and do not have strong desires to seek other employment positions.  Other workers are fearful of the job market and prefer the security of their current workplaces.  Work that is completed more independently, work requested as a need arises, or work that may be financially lucrative without accustomed benefits are some of the job areas that have grown in recent years.  Instability and difficulties in certain areas of the global economy have evoked cautionary tones for some workers, and for other workers - opportunities in fields that allow resolution to often painful or tragic events.
