I’m a small business owner and writer. It’s not the workers. They are hard-working. I’m sick of the excuses by managers. Workers are more productive than they have EVER been. Despite that, wages are half that of 1973 when adjusted for inflation.
It’s called short-term greed. During the 1990s, practically every business started firing just for the sake of firing, supposedly to “improve the bottom line”, and got rid of their skilled people. Every person with experience. Most companies went under within 10 years like Sunbeam did. Even utilities like USWest fired 9000 of 20000 workers in 1994 and racked up more complaints than all the other Bells in one year’s time.
I’m sick of employers wanting something for nothing. When the Baby Boomers took charge in the 1990s, they decided that they wanted everything, but the things like loyalty to the employee, honor, honesty, training new people, etc. were too much and for the most part quit doing it.
Then, 60 million illegals were imported, to make it even tougher.
Look where we are today.
Twenty years of that kind of garbage.
Treat your workers well and they will show up on time and they will work wonders. Treat them like most employers do today and guess what??
I’m sick of the whining.
1 Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you.
2 Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.
3 Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.
4 Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.
5 You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.
6 You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you.
James 5:1-6 (NIV)
