Catherine Lundy, Karen Roberts, and Douglas Becker, nonstandard employment is considered problematic by unions because it "allows employers to pass on to workers the economic insecurity associated with changing product markets, new technologies, and the business cycle." Passing this insecurity on to the workers is clearly antithetical to the union goal of protecting worker earnings and job stability.
