I think this is what has more people frustrated, angry, sad, feeling short changed and beaten down. Hard work simply does not pay off like we were
always taught it did.
The hardest workers are rarely ever management or higher paid positions - almost all places I've been, from Walmart, to small businesses, the owners
understand the least about their operations, and their workforce carries them.
"its who you know, not what you know" certainly seems to apply as well. Whether it's smaller franchises and businesses that simply give management
positions to their kin, regardless of ability ( look up business failure rates, typically third and fourth generations run things into the ground)
This along with "you have to have money to make money" leaves those of us without rich relatives at a huge disadvantage
(relatively) - those born into wealth are many times more likely to continue being wealthy, and those born outside of it, much less likely.
Now there are exceptions to the rule, and of course a person can own their own business, work for themselves, and find a market they can succeed in -
but this does not describe what everyone can do. Supply and demand dictates that only so many people can offer a certain service and succeed in an
area. People like to argue that we could all just work for ourselves, but it's not realistic. There's only so many services not being filled in, in
any particular area..
Anyways. Just a little bit frustrated, I guess. I'm definitely working to fight the odds.. But it's a tough uphill battle.
