Guest Opinion: We've failed if people want unemployment, not work

1 0 0

I like to consider myself to be an average citizen. I have experienced life from both sides of the workforce.

At first I worked for a couple of small independent service companies before getting a job with a big electronics company. I had to join a union and, like anything else in our lives, unions are good if they are what they are supposed to be. Then I went into my own business for well over 20 years and saw things from a different perspective.

In doing this, there was no such thing as an 8-hour day. You were the only one to do all of the other things that a business requires. The usual workweek consisted of at least a six-day work schedule. This was well and good........
