More In Praise of Idleness & the side of hell, the need for a change!
Being the way the work system is now, I sure do see the need to push the,
"In Praise of Idleness" By Bertrand Russell.
"Before advancing my own arguments for laziness, I must dispose of one which
I cannot accept. Whenever a person who already has enough to live on proposes
to engage in some everyday kind of job, such as school-teaching or typing, he or
she is told that such conduct takes the bread out of other people's mouths, and is
therefore wicked. If this argument were valid, it would only be necessary for us all
to be idle in order that we should all have our mouths full of bread.
What people who say such things forget is that what a man earns he usually spends,
and in spending he gives employment. As long as a man spends his income, he puts
just as much bread into people's mouths in spending as he takes out of other people's
mouths in earning. The real villain, from this point of view, is the man who saves.
If he merely puts his savings in a stocking, like the proverbial French peasant,
it is obvious that they do not give employment. If he invests his savings,
the matter is less obvious, and different cases arise."
And the need to look at is happening now to your workforce.
"This briefing paper begins by providing an overview of the jobs crisis facing
American workers a crisis that must be resolved if low-wage workers are to
experience brighter labor market prospects. It then explores the racial/ethnic
composition and education levels of the low-wage workforce.
Next, the briefing paper examines which states have the highest and lowest shares
of low-wage workers. Following this is an analysis of which of the 22 occupation
groups identified by the Bureau of Labor Statistics have the highest and lowest
shares of low-wage workers, and provides an overview of how overall employment
in those groups is expected to change by 2020. It then turns to a discussion of how
overall education, training, and work-experience requirements of the U.S. workforce
will change between 2010 and 2020. The paper concludes by explaining why any
focus on increased access to good jobs for low-wage workers should be less
concerned with educational attainment or changes in the skill demands of the
labor market, and more concerned with a range of policy-related issues that
affect job quality namely, the stagnating value of the minimum wage,
the erosion of health and retirement benefits, and the decline in bargaining power
of American workers."
Knowing that many are poor, not payed nothing.
And many people knowing now that the wages sets the market.
Having people that does without, kind of kills that Supply and demand stuff!
For the most part, you might see the need to raise the pay, when your workers
have no way to take care of their family. No way to get a raise, no overtime.
So when the rent goes up what do they do? Get their car REPO and walk all over town.
Those people are your work force, they might live in their apartment with no power,
cracking the walls etc in the 100+ deg heat.
The poor cost a lot and we can't make you money because we do without
and take in more help than we pay out in taxes.
So how are us poor to get an education? The money comes first then
the education. Or are they willing to pay for it because we can't afford it.
There is no night time daycare for my kid so are we you to do the Okie thing
& lock up your kid in a room with a bag of chips while you go to class?
Or just do anything & have the cost of DHS come & take the kid.
The cost of the poor just moves with no money!
The point of this is we need to be dumping money in the workers and stop this madness!
They cost us too much! We need more people with money not the cost of it!
Point of the low road, low pay noted! Raise the pay!
***The whole working system does need to change! The wages do need to go up.
Being the wages sets the market and many have low pay, the market will get pulled
down by the low and their cost to others!
***When your pay does go up spend what you earn, go to K-mart bring the zombie
back to life! Just think about it not doing without I sure am!
