You. "The knock on effect is going to be a country with an infrastructure run by under qualified least experienced people resulting in deaths, more
poverty, poor emergency services,and a general lack of cohesion with a dumbed down workforce.The will prevent any progression and could well see SA
falling backwards and perhaps the whole cycle starting all over again with the Whites and Afrikaners having to be called upon to save it."
I believe you have just described the US. Only to many whites over here have been taught that they are at fault for everything in the world and should
be ashamed to be alive. So who is going to come and save the US?
In the job I worked until recently the requirement was that you were a tech for a few years to learn the equipment, then had on the job training for
up to a year, before you were allowed on console by yourself where your real training began. Most were white men, there were a few blacks, and a few
women who did well. It requires a particular temperment to do the job right as effectively all the engineers, techs, and managers have no say when it
is time to do your job. Neither do the others next to you on console. Everything is your decision. There is no way around it. Now they are trying to
push people through with no tech training, 6 months or less on the job experience, and hope the few of us left can save these people from their
mistakes. That is why I and those few left have had so many heart attacks.
It also used to be the policy that when you started having the heart
attacks they would put you on a day job, sort of like on the job retirement, where they still had access to your experience. That has gone away
I guess what I am saying is I wonder if what is happening in SA has been happening around the world with us just not noticing it? I hear it is as bad
in the UK as it is in the US. The same goes for France and Australia. I am unfamiliar with the East meaning Asian country's and India. Are they
avoiding this problem and if so how?
