"End OWS

"...

How about instead, 'end OWS, tell the parasites to acquire a needed job skill'?

Is that Boeing on many of those shirts? If so I think that would be wrong because Boeing is hiring.

How about an across-the-board willingness for OJT and not using everything in the book to avoid hiring US citizens in good faith/terms?

What I've seen is an all-out war against hiring US citizens waged by business, in favor of more pliant Third Worlders. Skill complaints are made as a way to justify not hiring US citizens, or on suboptimal terms. For those that really do have the skillsets, fraud is used so that the citizen cannot possibly qualify, so that the job is handed to the Third Worlder - on terms that the US citizen is more than well-qualified.



If you're looking for the massacre, look towards the businesses that fired the shots. They had the choice to consider other solutions that were still profitable yet didn't contribute to extended unemployment.


In short, there is no skills shortage, just an unwillingness to hire and train.

Why should the parasites be allowed to steal potential wealth from the stockholders sethstorm?

OJT costs the company money, why should company's stockholders take the financial hit when you should be more than willing to spend your money for OJT?

"What I've seen is an all-out war against hiring US citizens waged by business, in favor of more pliant Third Worlders"...

Is that your excuse for not having a job that pays you what you think you're worth?

"They had the choice to consider other solutions that were still profitable yet didn't contribute to extended unemploymen"...

That is one of the most delusional statements I've ever read sethstorm...

So is wasting time on complaining about not having the absolutely perfect skillset (if not the impossible-to-have one). For multiple years on end, especially after 2007, the trend has been to take the easy route and blame the worker - even if the company could get value out of the training (even if such OJT was once done up until a generation ago).

That has to be a very callous and sociopathic statement to make in defense of your sacred cow, the stockholders.

A couple things wrong with your comment there sethstorm...

It is the worker's fault if he/she doesn't have the skills to do the job they're being paid to do...

Today the labor market is to dynamic for a company to invest in training an employee who could pick up and leave anytime...

Only the Democrats will scare the !@#$ out of employers and then whine about nobody hiring. Business can only truly vote with their feet.
