Lindsay Runyen, 23, a bartender and waitress who dreams of teaching history, describes Winnie's LeBus, a Manayunk bar and eatery, as a halfway house for people like her -- 20 somethings who are under-employed.
There's an academic name for her situation: Paul Harrington, director of Drexel University's Center for Labor Markets and Policy, calls it mal-employment. You can read more about mal-employment in "Struggling for Work," our series about the millennial generation and their less-than-promising future.
When I interviewed Lindsay a month or so ago, she described her co-workers:
There was Bernadette, a speech pathologist who doesn't have a job and Josh, "a great guy" who went to community college for music and would like to figure out how to get in a union so he could make more money and have a stable job.
