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