Question of the day: does the job market need more Workers or more Employers right now? And which is public Schooling producing?
The answer is that the job market needs more employers to be able to provide more jobs for workers to balance everything out. The answer to the other question is the compulsory schooling of ANY kind produces many more workers than employers, overwhelmingly so, to the point that there is too much supply of workers and not enough demand for them/not enough employers. There is competition amongst workers for jobs but not much competition amongst employers for workers cause there simply isn't enough employers, which is financially beneficial for existing employers. The worker competition drives down the cost for a worker to the lowest bidder, especially globally in less developed nation states. Our schooling systems have been created & co opted by the Rockefellers, special interest groups, non-elected rulers & other existing employers & corporations to limit the amount of competition for themselves as much as possible since they can't have a monopoly in this country anymore. If children had their freedom growing up they could explore what they wanted to when they wanted to & dive deep into their interests, & those interests would result in more of them making companies & becoming employers & providing more jobs, & those companies would compete with existing companies in the same industries & make new industries, & that competition would lower the cost of goods & services for some of the companies (android) & or raise the quality of the goods & services to win over the trust of customers (iPhone) even more then what plays out today. There would be more jobs available & less workers as more of the population would be employers instead, so cause of both sides of that equation, employment would skyrocket. There would be more company options in a given industry for the best workers, & more demand for those workers, raising the salaries or pay being offered to those workers. Between competition for the goods & services driving the price down & overhead going up, there would be less profit for employers & shareholders & more income for workers, leading to greater income equality overall. Public schooling has so much of the child market that it's virtually a monopoly, which is causing the rest of these problems & creating more profits for large corporations & their owners (shareholders). Not to mention that existing & increasing regulation makes it that much more difficult for more people to become employers & create more business or corporate competition.
"Big businesses all around the world have numerous levels of management.
For example: Big companies tend to have big IT sectors. Hence there are the specialized employees; each of these employees are assigned to a specific boss (sub-manager), and each boss is assigned to the head of IT, who is again assigned to the head of the company.
Hence we have:
1 (Head of the company)
5 (Different heads of sectors) (Ratio of 5/1)
7 (Submanagers per sector) (Ratio of 7/1)
15 (Employees per Submanager) (Hence at 3rd level we have a ratio of 15/1)
This should illustrate what I mean by employee to employer ratios."
I'd say all management levels are workers, & maybe even the head of company. But let's regard the head of company as the employer & everyone else as workers for a ratio of 525 workers to 1 employer. (1*5*7*15). All unemployed people are workers also, just without work, so if we included them the ratio would be much greater. A healthy economy for everyone would require a much lower ratio, more employers, & no government that trains the majority of students to be workers instead of employers.
@jamesgiantkeg: If there were more employers & companies coming out of the school system we wouldn't need to go on strike & wouldn't need unions.
-there'd be so much competition between companies for workers/good workers that they'd never want to take away benefits or pay. But a SCHOOL system can only produce workers, & employers & entrepreneurs are mistakes (people who weren't schooled into conformity)
