There are times when the multiple stages of the seeming structured pyramid come into conflict with themselves, it is as a time of crisis. Only in times of peace do they tend to complement each other.

New risks are emerging that need mitigation in a current crisis and a post-corona world. The economy slammed its brakes, its impact will be felt in short term. It would slowly regain upwards momentum with time but for now, the employment will take a hit as businesses shutdowns, economy slumps and in some cases just because of no virtual frameworks to operate in. Hiring has ceased as people are already being laid off for these reasons. The non-digital works will suffer the most which have to be either digitalized or just wait till it all gets over and re-structured. The new talent coming in the economy will have to compete with already saturated labour market. Desperate selection of work would happen as people, in a rush, will take up any job that is offered. This in-turn will cause dissatisfaction in a long run resulting in churn and temporary re-alignment of the market. …
