A true private sector job is created when someone can profit from my work by much more than the wages and benefits I’m paid. So my responsibility is to find a way to add enough value to an employer, through education, skills, and experience or a combination of all three. Or, I can employ myself to profit from my skills. All the plaintive hand-wringing by Mr. Wapshott won’t change these requirements nor get anyone truly employed.
