I'll try and keep this to the point without trying to bash political parties/corporate fat-cats. I am very much against people working for
There are not enough jobs for all 7 billion people
who inhabit this earth. As we become more technologically advanced, jobs will decline even
further. We are seeing it already in the western world - Self checkouts being a major red flag when it comes to people being replaced by machinery.
The Economy in the western world no longer offer's "jobs" it offers "work"
More and more jobs are low paid, not full time and temporary. My five year experience in the service sector (Retail work) has given me no hope that
things will improve - All the shops ive worked in, management at the top have cut hours for employee's to the thread bare, the only people who work
full time are team leaders and managers. Everyone else gets 25hrs or less work per week.
Employing people on a part time basis has its perks for the company - You can rota them in on the busiest days/hours and not have to give them a break
because they are not working longer than five and half hours (EU law)
With companies in the service sector operating in this way, the economy will never be as it was.
Queue the idea's of "Lazy work shy bums" earning
their pittance from the government. This is an idea i believe is being raised by many
developed countries. As generations come and go there are going to be less and less
jobs, so governments of developed worlds are going to have
an awfully large work force sitting idle- The longer this continues the more a poor society will deteriorate. I genuinely believe (Without trying to
fear monger) that we are going to end up with a "Rich or Poor" scenario, You are one or the other, there is no in-between.
I personally cannot see a new sector of jobs being established in the western world. As other countries develop (If they're allowed to) then
manufacturing MIGHT return to western countries, but by the time that happens, would it be to late to resuscitate society?
Anyway, working for your welfare is the future. You'll pick up litter, work in store's, clean public buildings (All teh # jobs) and you'll do it for
less than minimum wage. Give it 20 years, it'll be the norm.
