We Fund Dependency

Posted October 7th, 2012 by pmfalcon

"There are no jobs!" That is what people told me outside a government "jobs center" in New York City. But, 4 researchers quickly found 40 job openings. So what goes on at these government "job centers?" I asked a college intern, to find out. Her conclusions:
--It's easier to get welfare than to work.
--The government would rather sign me up for welfare than help me find work.
--America has taxpayer-funded bureaucracies that encourage people to be dependent. They incentivize people to take "free stuff," not to take initiative.

Unschool Yourself and Your Kids

I think apprenticeships have the potential to create a much more efficient learning model. Most people learn by doing, not by reading books, listening to lectures or taking tests. If you tray to cram too much information inside at a time, you will not retain much for very long. Testing a person for their knowledge has huge drawbacks namely that you are testing for memory skills, not practical working knowledge. If you learn a little and use it right after, it will reinforce that knowledge and make the learning of the subject much more satisfying.

People think having a job is a government-preserved right

This article was posted in the comments section of this boing_boing story about a Starbucks barista that posted a job rant on YouTube for which he was later fired (http://boingboing.net/2011/09/21/baristas-starbucks-rant-song-gets-him-f... ).

I thought the FTL family would enjoy parsing the lunacy of a doctrine that many out there fully buy into.
Read it and you'll enjoy gems like this:

"In fact, the right to a job is a matter of law—and has been for 62 years!"

A Massachuetts jobs commission ordered almost two years ago to find ways to create and maintain jobs in Massachusetts has never met. It has taken them two years just to name the people on the commission! The deadline for the report by the commission has been extended now to June 2012.
By the time the commission meets, makes its report, the Legislature reviews it, acts on it, is implemented, and has time to work, that might be about the time the NEXT downturn in the economy occurs!

Pramod Bhasin, CEO of Indian outsourcing giant Genpact, said he will move jobs to America because high US unemployment is pushing wage rates below that of what he's having to pay in India.

What happens when a state is lucky enough to have one of their Senators ascend to one of the three most powerful committee chairmanships? According to a new study by three Harvard Business School the average state then experiences a 40 to 50 percent increase in earmark spending (the figure is a smaller 20% for powerful House committees). So this new government spending is then a boon to the state right? The public spending stimulates economic growth right? Wrong. Turns out, increased federal spending is connected with a decrease in corporate capital expenditures and employment.
