I once talked to the head of an agency here about an idea I had about training the young to know what is expected of them at the job when they first
went to work. It was a simple and free service I was going to do to teach the kids that they have to show up on time, call in when sick, and make
sure they pay attention to what their employer is telling you to do. I trained about five or six young workers right out of school, it sucks, they
haven't a clue what is required and think they do not need to produce, just show up. I was going to teach the kids about how an employer usually does
not make much money training an employee, not in the real job sector anyway. They need to know that they have to climb the ladder, not expect big
bucks from a small business that is in competition with other businesses till they are trained in.
So what did the government agency head say to me. He told me it was an excellent idea, if the government gets hold of this idea at the top, they will
make it expensive, complicated, and tack hundreds of ideas onto it making it basically a failure. He had seen two or three good ideas like that turn
into nightmares by the time the bigshots got their claws into it.
That was the end of that idea, I gave up on that idea, my insurance would have soared to insure students at my business location. I thought with
approval from the government it could have been a five day class in the school, The school could do nothing without approval from the state and
feds. I had about three other business owners who would have come in and taught these kids a bit about their work, they thought it was good if the
kids would learn a little about this and were willing to teach the kids a little about their profession...for free. They were hoping to maybe get a
good future employee out of the students by observing their attitudes and trying to make them know understand how their businesses worked.
Most employers around here do not get rich, they cannot provide the wages that other areas of the country give, the cost of living around here is
pretty decently low, the wages are also not very high though. People cannot afford to pay a lot for people if there is not good efficient work being
preformed. This is not a rich area.
Kids are being steered towards high paying technology jobs in college, the degree is kind of worthless, the kids could have gone to work at a decent
job till they gained experience and figured what they really want to be. That happens after you hit around twenty something, not when you are
eighteen. Meanwhile the kids gained experience at working and are ready to start on their way through school again, this time in a direction that
they will like. I know a lot of people who got degrees in a field and they hate that kind of work. They are working regular jobs at gas stations and
restaurants, there are no jobs in their field. The schools are conditioning our kids to go to school more and go into debt. Employers used to pay
people to learn and if five years you already have started making decent money. So, many of the government agencies lower management know how messed
up the government is at the top.
