Resurgence of a Huckster
In order to survive, we have to sell and promote what is dictated to us for a mere, small percentile of the actual monies collected for the widget or service. If you crafted an item by hand and sold it on the open market, in most cases, you would be classified as a peddler, attempting to get people to buy your stock so you can move on to the next place or town. In the past, these colporteurs came to your town and approached people and business alike to buy the products. In most cases, the products sold were not made by the peddler and were usually shoddy and uncommon thus produced the necessity to quickly move on to the next town. Products themselves are really not sold anymore. Product knowledge is non-existent. I was looking at some mini-laptops in a well know department store, one guaranteed to be in your neighborhood. I ask several questions about the unit I wanted and the salesperson could not answer one question with any confidence or certainty. I basically was selling it to myself. So why was that salesperson there? Most likely just to ring it through the POS system if you decided to buy the item, which I did not. So why then is this multi-billion dollar company not training it’s staff to know such things about the products being sold? I asked myself this question driving home and was confused. Then it dawned on me. It is not because they cannot afford to train these individuals. It is not even because they cannot pay more then minimum wage, but pay minimum wage because we and the government (puppets of the 1 percent) allow them to oppress their employees. It is because they stand behind their products. Way behind their products. You may get lucky and get a good device or product. Then again, if it breaks in 30 days, you are out of luck because these large corporations only have a 14 day return policy. Wow, a whole 14 days unless you purchase a replacement warranty which will cost you approximately 30% more at the time of sale. When you ask the sales individual about the replacement warranty, they start stumbling over their words again in a well recited manner because it is exactly what this multi-billion dollar corporation wants because, by the time the third or fourth stutter of non-knowledgeable response utters from the salesperson, you would have already either purchased the replacement warranty or rejected it, in which case the multi-billion dollar corporation wins either way, unless you back out of the deal all together.
Chimerical Wage of Inception
One thing most employers look for these days is people that are easily led and dominated. In most cases, people tend to play along emulating the appearance that they are easily led in order to keep their job for more then 3 months. Most employers, especially large corporations, like to turn over their staff every 3 to 6 months in order to receive new-hire grants and subsidies from the government. Actually, if you look at it logically, you are paying 30% income tax to keep yourself employed thus the employer is getting that tax dollar right back to their pocket meaning you are paying the employer to hire you. The average employment subsidy can be from 40 to 75% of the wages paid out, and in some cases, the government is paying 100%. The government does not care because it is not their money. It is your money. What exactly do employment subsidies solve anyway? What do they exactly create? Nothing. Do they hire more or redundant staff? No. Do they hire more staff so you do not have to hunt down a floor attendant or stand in line at one open checkout while there are 10 closed checkouts? No. They, if anything, will cut the staff to minimum take full advantage of the subsidy and keep the revolving employment door rolling at full speed. Take these subsidies away and the company cuts their workforce. They really do not need to cut their staff and really do not need the subsidies. I say take away the subsidies across the board. They may squabble and threaten. But in the end, if they see a dollar to be made, they will stay open.
Bite the Hand that Bleeds You
We could stop this from happening but these subsidies and grants are not common knowledge and most companies really do not want you as the employee to know because they would rather you think of them as your sole saviour and monetary provider. That way you will work for them in a slave-like manner because you do not want to become another unemployment statistic. This is also because most people are in hock up to their ears and feel they have to take these serf driven jobs in order to pay off all their credit bills. When our money gets thrown back to the employers by our government and from interest owed, it encourages these employers to be more greedy and tyrannical. To be honest, if you are young, you would be better off living at home, renting a room from your parents, and socking your money away until you are 40 years old. Do not be lecherous to your family, be helpful and keep working jobs when they are available. When unemployed, collect unemployment insurance because you paid for it, so use it. You and your family will prosper, and the best thing about this whole arrangement is you do not have to use credit. If living at home is not an option, then rent a small room from a family in a residential area. You will save money hand over fist and when you are ready to buy a house, buy one for cash and do not borrow. Then build your own family. Once you live without credit, it is hard to go back because you can see through the deception. If you are in hock up to your ears and all your money is taken before you even get a paycheck, then claim bankruptcy. Credit counselling does not work. Putting all your credit bills into one payment definitely does not work. So avoid those solutions like the plague. In most cases, credit debts are not secured loans thus can be easily shed. You may think that bankruptcy will destroy you, but all it really does is free you from debt pushers. You will not get credit again for 7 to 10 years which will only serve as a blessing.
