A Case Study in Labour Mobility - 50 Jobs in 50 Weeks
Perhaps we should expect nothing less from an unemployed Economics graduate, heavily in debt who had become desperate in search of a fulfilling job. Californian Dan Seddiqui went from being homeless and unemployed to getting 50 different jobs in 50 different US states in just 50 weeks and his story is featured in today’s Daily Telegraph
“In just 50 weeks Dan tried everything from being a lobster catcher, a jazz conductor, a TV weatherman and even a Las Vegas wedding planner.” Naturally a book is on the way!
This article is perfect as a starter teaching resource when discussing occupational and geographical mobility of labour and the natural and structural barriers that prevent others doing something similar in their search for worthwhile work.
