Comments on: The real scandal is jobs Wed, 26 Nov 2014 19:47:54 +0000 hourly 1 By: markrm Thu, 13 Jun 2013 14:02:23 +0000 A job is not a loaf of bread – you can’t hand make-work to anyone and have it be any more than another form of welfare. 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.
