Unions and employment agencies both serve a good purpose in the workforce. Now, however, it seems like there is a void that is not being filled, and somebody needs to fill it. Many workers have their resumes out there, but either the pay is too low, or in areas where workers aren’t currently located.
What if, unions, employment agencies and these workers networked and created viable co-ops? With a slight change in operational procedures unions and employment agencies could help workers organize and raise the needed capital to form their own small companies. They could also assist with management, training, and identifying needs to be addressed locally, nationally and globally. Thus, reviving communities all over America.
When Medicare-For-All passes, and it will eventually pass, unions would need to change the services they offer, and this will be a great role for them and employment agencies to fulfill. The could also provide co-ops with negotiation training so that they can compete for government contracts to provide goods and services across the nation. Time to discuss — what do you think?
For a while, I’ve been considering what to do to help supplement/create income. I’m in my fifties, a veteran, and since I was used to leading troops a certain way in the military, it’s difficult relating to many in the civilian work force. 🤷♂️ Anyway those are stories for another time. Today I’m here to tell you about my store on Bonfire!
Since I’m a blogger/writer, I thought creating T-shirts would be a natural extension of what I do. I know you might be thinking, “wow, another t-shirt guy”… But wait!!! MY SHIRTS are different… (yeah, you’ve heard that before too.) So, the only think I can ask and invite you to do is go to the store and check it out. There’s only one shirt there now… so your visit will be short and sweet, but I invite you to keep coming back because more are on the way. And keep visiting this blog site too! Much appreciated.
Co-operatives (co-ops) should be way more of a thing than they are. I think that when the government doesn’t want to do its job to step in and help the citizenry, an opportunity is afforded to ordinary people toenter into the marketplace to possibly even the playing field. Offering and obtaining reasonably priced goods and services.
[Starting with this article, I am going to approach writing my blogs and posts a bit differently. I am going to offer resources I used along with my thoughts and commentary so that you can both hear what I have to say, as well as give you a starting point to research for yourself. Hopefully, this will make it more of an interactive space where we can learn and maybe grow together. ]
Anyway, In my opinion, some businesses are way out of line when they charge extra high prices for goods and services during emergencies… AND PANDEMICS. Considered by some to be commodities; those goods and services are important because they are simply needed to operate in the normal course of living. Businesses should be more Read More
I was just watching a Netflix show called The Social Dilemma. It was talking about how many of the platforms, including browsers and search engines are designed to manipulate our behavior. I kinda knew that, but… it was one of those pieces of knowledge that you just stick in the back of the brain– for future use.😏
Anyway, I wanted to test that theory, so I cut off my phone. I did not put it on vibrate. I did not put it on silent. I did not put it in airplane mode. I cut it off. 😳 When I say that it felt like I freed up a portion of my brain, Read More
It is my opinion that the watchwords for every business should be ‘good service’. It really takes no extra effort to smile and welcome someone into your store. If it is a bother for you to do that; then my question to you is WHY are you in business and operating a storefront?
Okay. I was in a business establishment recently in which I think I received close to the worst service ever given by a business.
Yes, I was there to pass out my business cards and information; but I was also actually there to check out the nice display of boats and other items they had.
So anyway, when I first entered into the place, all the people, who I guess were salespersons, were huddled around a desk.
They all looked in that direction, because they all heard the door open. However, acknowledging that a potential customer had entered was not part of their operating procedure or training. No ‘hello’…no ‘we’ll be right there’… no nothing.
