The Mershimer Group Steps Up and Offers Gig Work Across the U.S.
Foxborough, MA, September 22, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Over 7.5 million Americans are unemployed, 2 million of which have been out of work for over 27 weeks. If you are or have ever been unemployed, you know the hardships that come with that status. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are approximately 575,000 discouraged workers. Discouraged workers are persons not currently looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for them. To help fill unemployment voids and resume gaps, The Mershimer Group, a division of HS Brands International is seeking to employ Independent Contractors all across the U.S.

If you have a background as a Field Based Multi-Unit Manager in auditing, loss prevention, operations, restaurants or human resources and want to be put to work tomorrow, visit hsbrands/jobs for immediate consideration.

Thomas Floystrop reached out to The Mershimer Group when he was a victim of company downsizing. Floystrop has since lead the Loss Prevention efforts as the Director of Loss Prevention at Pet Supermarket prior to their merger with Pet Valu. Floystrop says, “Working as an Independent Contractor for The Mershimer Group, helped me gain vast experience as it provided me with exposure to a variety of clients which at most times required a wide variety of asset protection solutions.”

According to President and COO of HS Brands International, Mike Mershimer, “Our clients benefit from our Independent Contractors’ expertise and various backgrounds. By employing Independent Contractors across the U.S., we have the ability to put qualified individuals to work immediately.”

The trend toward a gig economy has begun. A study published by Intuit predicted that by 2020, nearly 40 percent of U.S. workers will become Independent Contractors. From the perspective of the freelancer, a gig economy can improve work-life balance over what is possible in most jobs.
