Finding Great Workers, Harder Than It Sounds!
Being a Small Business owner has it’s advantages, but at the same time it has it’s many disadvantages. One of these I have been having experience with lately is that of trying to find good workers who WANT to work.
Ever since the COVID-19 debarkle, I have been finding it so hard to find people who have a good head on their shoulders, and who want to work. Now, I know I’m not the only small business to be experiencing this, everytime I walk through the local shopping centres I see signs everywhere asking for people to work.
What the hell is wrong with Australia, and Australians in particular. Job Keeper, and it’s close cousin Job Seeker have done nothing but damage the economy. Maybe that was the whole point of the exercise, the make it as difficult it possble for businesses within the economy to survive, it seems it’s like the Hunger Games and the survival of the fittest.
Finding Great Workers, is harder than it sounds, no longer is receiving a good pay check worth anything to people – they would rather hold their hands out to receive from the Government, the same Government that will one day turn their backs on them while the Banks increase their hold by lifting rates. Then all these people who have passed up on good jobs will no longer have anywhere to turn because all the small businesses would have gone out of business.
Anyway, that’s my rant for today..
