Workers Demand Better Jobs – Does Anyone Else See Something Wrong With That?

1 May 2010 No Comment

There are some big marches around the world today with workers demanding better pay, better conditions and more jobs.  Ok, I could see demanding better pay and conditions, but demanding better jobs seems comical to me.  As if jobs are created out of thin air simply in response to a worker’s demands.

It seems like we’ve forgotten that jobs are created by businesses.  Businesses needs to be created and/or grow in order for “more jobs” to be available and offered to workers.  This requires innovation, capital, hard work, entrepreneurship, etc.  So, here is an idea, instead of marching in a protest demanding “more jobs” and “better jobs”, how about you stay home and work on a business plan?

Do basic economic principles even exist anymore in today’s global economy?
