Companies who try to pirate competitors often learn the hard way they only gain problem workers. It is being more and more proven today those companies who train their staffs well in the right skills have far less problem people. A former man who I worked for in a past company made speeches to our industry organizations, in every speech he emphasised " companies who train their own people will last longer than those who didnt 75% of the companies in business (then) were not here 20 years later. Also companies who train and take care of their employees well do not need non-compete programs, instead those leaders in companies who do not treat people will will be beating down the doors to join loyal companies.

I worked for what used to be a "Family owned" business ( 1968-late seventies.) It grew frrom about 400 to 1200 workers, Second best paying "Shop" in our city. We used to get "Reasonable" raises most years. ( A tidbit over Inflation) The thing is...... There was a sense of "Purpose" working there. A sense of slowly "Getting ahead." The COMPANY and US were in it together! Work "Ethic" was pretty good....... The "Family" got richer, and so did we. (Somewhat.)It wasn't even a "Union Shop" THe owners always were decent on us, and surprisingly....... Walked through the place with "Good morning, Bill, John, Sam" etc Fast forward a few years...... A "Bain-like" company bought "US" Decade by decade, things got worse. MUCH worse! "They" had to answer to "Stockholders" now.Stockholders don't want to hear "15% Margin?" "More One "Efficiency-expert" even BRAGGED.... "I love firing people!" That's the modern "Mantra"....... "If I can fire/layoff TWO people, I'm a genius!" From an accountant point of view, it DOES make sense? Two workers at $30,000 a year including benifits= Maybe $45,000 a year SAVINGS! Geez? That's equal to About $250,000 a year Sales? ( Or more?) The thing is....... When 900 workers are doing the work of 1200, from a management point of view, obviously we were overstaffed? The REAL thing is....... 900 cannot really do as well as 1200.......... Pride and work ethic suffers. Rejects are the "New way of life." Our company's reputation suffered big time! Attitudes among workers became....... "THEY don't give a s**t about US, why should we care about THEM?" People used to flock to work there. A future. A REAL future. After 10 years, you maybe even could risk buying a home for your family. Now? Just ANOTHER dead end shop. $10-$11 an hour = Just "Survival Pay?" I recall 30 years back when MOST of us spent time trying to THINK during the day........ Think about........"I can produce 10% more if we do it THIS way." Now, it's 99.9% workers just........ Do the "Numbers" I'm expected of." Yeah, maybe the "Numbers" looked better when we had two Janitors instead of one, and line-workers weren't expected to halt production to clean the urinals too, and we are EXPECTED to bow and bless the "Ties" for even having a job but......... When I see most of the "Ties" with feet up desks,in A/C offices, watching cute Panda vids or porn, and occassioinlly working up a "Pie-Chart" in between dicsussioins of their golf game, I have to wonder why I'm talked down to like a "Serf" if I took a MOMENT to catch my breath in my 110 degree work area, and they "The Brains" rarely come out to help us? They got the "Papers" So does my neighbor's Sheltie. Whoop-dee-doo?
I think the nation has been asleep. The President has been saying all along that "he believes in Collective Salvation". Collective Salvation means that a person, company or nation will take from the rich and give to the poor in order to gain a reward at the end of their lives. In other words folks, this is part of his religion. You here people say...a person should not judge or chose a President based on his religious beliefs. Ok.. This is what his religious beliefs are so don't be suprised to what we get. While you thinking, look up WWW.FrankMarshallDavisicom to see where this nation is really headed. Also, while you're thinking, ask youreslf, (for all your Bible scholars), just before Jesus came on the scene, who came as a forerunner? Right, John the Baptist. If you check, there has been a forerunner preparing the way for who was to come. Many people believe that where will be a forerunner before the Antichrist comes. This person will do and say things in preparing the way. He may say or do things in their leading that will cause many to feel helpless. Wanting or demanding total control. By passing the system in order to get and do what he wants without approval. The antichrist will take total control. Pretending to be for the people. Misleading many. Now who do you fits this character today? Right On! Folks, get ready. Think about this, what good will a bank or house full of money if it's worthless? What will be more important to you and your family, worthlesss money or a room or shed full of freeze dried food? Be wise.. If nothing happens, this stuff has a 25 year life span. You can always use it or give it to the needy. But if things pan out to the way it's headed. You and family win?
no one likes gov in a democracy but with this country turning into socialism gov will take control so be ready to share any good fortune you may have going forward wont mean a dam thing so get that entitlement card before they are all gone
America is on track to become a third world country by the year 2025 according to articles in both Forbes magazine and the Wall Street Journal. Most jobs are paying less, while the cost of living keeps steadily increasing. More people than ever are behind on their mortgage payments, falling behind on their car payments, there has been a increases in bankruptcies, increase premiums on their medical payments, and folks the list goes on. America is in a World of hurt. A lot of jobs now don't pay a liveable wage for a family to live on, we are talking about people who had good jobs/careers until they were outsourced to other countries. Until jobs start paying more we will continue to see ( despite what the talking heads on these Sunday Morning talk shows say) more and more good people turn to the government for assis. just to survive. I wonder if this is what the government wanted to happen all along.!!!
Many of these problems are the Employers themselves, Back in the day you could walk into any place fill out an application and leave a resume and even get an interview and most likely be employed by the end of the week. Today its just not so. Employers have become way to lazy in the hiring process and their managers no longer have the authority to hire anyone. People are now subjected to having to fill out on line applications which consume 45 min. where applicants are subjected to taking these Surveys and aptitude tests which are pure BS. These on line apps most of the time don't even allow you to apply a resume. The other problems are the fact that NO LIVE person is even seeing your application, both application and tests are fed through a computer that sifts through all of them and randomly picks and chooses the best candidates based on the BS aptitude tests which does not really serve any purpose and is a waste of time. So your future is basically now in the hands of a computer, doing the hiring, getting that interview based on what the computer spits out is nothing more then a formality. I recently got rejected for a job as a Prep Cook and I have been in that business for over 27 years with 15 as a prep cook, but after making some calls I found out that they hired some one with only 3 years experience simply because the computer liked his answers better in the BS aptitude test. I bet this person does not work out. IF any employers are reading this, STOP BEING LAZY!!!! and actually look at an application and resume and really do an interview STOP depending on your computers.
Employers opt for temp and contract hiring for several reasons -- #1 it allows them to TEST DRIVE the worker to see if they want to keep them, #2 it relieves them of risk and liability in hiring someone who doesnt work out then tries to sue when terminated, #3 it allows employers to adjust on daily/weekly basis as needed, #4 it helps employer stay BELOW the Obamacare employee head count. Bottom line is NO business owner I knows is planning to hire in 2013 due to this administration policies. This is the longest recession in history and I see no end in sight.
I agree with all you said except #2, things can still happen on the job, and this route does not make or relieve the employer immune from being sued!
Own my own business and deal with a lot of others who do as well, dont know where this article is coming from sounds like B___ S____! Temporary And Contract Hiring On The Rise this tells the story. Going this way relieves you of a lot of burdens with insurance, workers comp and other issues. Like busing years ago it didnt work so why do they still do it? This country is on a downward spiral, its need to hurry an crash.
Perception is key! If everyone thinks bad? IT WILL BE BAD! If you want things to improve, everyone needs to work harder and smarter. Unlike our government, you can't spend money you don't have! Think of your image. Most companies are hiring temporary and illegals. How does this make you think of these companies? Me? If I even THINK they are downing the American worker? I do my best not to support them.
