THE TRUTH ABOUT CHILD LABOR+

india_child_labor

Historically and even now young children and teenagers work on farms and do hard labor. Today teenagers no longer work in most families and the result is that few know how to work or even want to work for a living. It is time to start employing teenagers in the workplace where they can not only get job experience but where they can learn about the work ethic.

Most schools no longer teach students useful work skills and it is high time to update child labor laws and make it possible for teenagers to work about 4 hours a day as cashiers, factory assembly line workers, urban farming, stock humans, deli workers, custodians, etc.

Yes, teenagers will compete with young adults in the work place but it will be a wake up call to those adults to get a good education or go back to school and get reeducated or spend the rest of their lives on welfare.

School hours can be shorted by at least 4 hours since education in most schools is very inefficient with many useless subjects are being taught. Specialty vans, bicycles, and scooters can be used to get students to and from work with the parent’s permission. The teenagers would start out at less than minimum wage unless they became so good that they deserved to get minimum wage for their efforts.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MINIMUM WAGE+

minimum-wage

MYTH: We will always be able to remain fully employed as a nation and it is desirable to do so.

TRUTH: We need massive underemployment to get rid of trivial unnecessary jobs in the economy and make it more efficient in the future by offering free education in a technical field as a realistic hope of future employment to those unemployed and destitute who have a desire to put in the effort and who have the ability and who will try to achieve a greater level of quality education.

With a safety net for the unemployed and destitute there will be no need for a minimum wage because if it is too low then citizens will remain unemployed and destitute supported with basic needs delivered door to door but no vehicle transportation.

Instead without a minimum wage employers will be able to hire teenage offspring to do fast food, clerical help, custodial work, deli work, urban farming, safe factory jobs,  and other safe jobs at minimal hourly rates for about 4 hours a day so that they get training in the work ethic on the job with financial help from the family.  Children of the employed will have the opportunity to learn basic job and people skills which will be very useful in the employment world where it is frequently said that you can’t get a job without experience.

Transportation to an from work can be done by specialty van, bicycles, and scooters with parental permission.

Teenage offspring of the employed will get all the job experience which they need and then some! We will also be once again in a competitive position with developing countries like China and Russia.

There may be some that feel that there would be less time for school if they worked.  Shorten the school day by four hours a day because offspring aren’t learning useful job skills in school anyway and a liberal arts education is overrated and is largely an inefficient trivial pursuit expensive bureaucracy to boot.

Teenage offspring of the unemployed and destitute should not qualify for part time work because it would motivate the adults to have more offspring and send them out to earn spending money for the unemployed and destitute. Instead the teenage offspring of the unemployed and destitute should be spending more time on education which will benefit them later in life.

I don’t believe in using profane language but I use fuck here to get the message across to those working people that I love so much such as furniture movers.  Those people have bodily difficult jobs carrying heavy furniture every day and it is a hard boring job.  Many of them use fuck and motherfucker every forth word or so and I empathize with them.

I am a man for the working people because I have been there and seen it and experienced it with my own body sweat.  Yea, I can also move medium weight furniture. I am not afraid of dirty difficult jobs or any job because different jobs are necessary and to be admired. I worked my butt off doing a speedy job by moving speedily with about three to five boxes at a time strapped to my back.  Did I get rewarded for that extra work? No!  I was working for minimum wage and there was no incentive to work efficiently and make the customer happy with a speedy move.

The truth is that most of those minimum wage jobs are unjust and in about 10 to 20 years there should be very few minimum wage jobs that robots can’t do better. Most of those minimum wage workers should be educating themselves on the internet for better technologically based jobs.  Education retraining in science and technology over the internet at home or in school should be financed by the federal government and the instruction for the audio visual education should be provided by private firms also potentially funded by foundations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. All the recipients of this free internet education would be the unemployed and destitute and all students in public schools and community colleges and universities.

The truth is that most minimum wage jobs should be robotized and humans should not be trapped into working at minimum subsistence levels for long durations.  That kind of work is truly dehumanizing and an unjust exploitation and minimization of the full potential of the human body and mind!!!!!!

WE DON’T NEED A MINIMUM WAGE IF WE PASS LAWS GUARANTEEING A SAFETY NET FOR ALL UNEMPLOYED AND DESTITUTE ADULTS AND THAT INCLUDES RECENT SCHOOL GRADUATES WHO CAN’T FIND EMPLOYMENT IN THE WORKPLACE. ONLY FOOD STAMPS ARE NOT ENOUGH HELP FOR THE UNEMPLOYED AND DESTITUTE STRANGERS AND FAMILY OFFSPRING!!!!!!

READ MY BOOK CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS WHICH ARE NEEDED TO STOP OR KILL THE MINIMUM WAGE MYTH OR HISTORICAL LIE!!!!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHILD LABOR

teenEMPLOYMENT

Teenagers historically used to help out with hard farm work and there is no reason why modern teenagers should not be working part time about 4 hours a day to learn the work ethic and about the importance of being punctual. Teenagers should not be treated like children subject to child labor laws.

School is not very challenging for most liberal arts students and little useful knowledge is learned in school these days so the school day itself could be cut back by about 4 hours without quality education suffering at all.

Teenagers should be working in rather safe work conditions as sales clerks, stock clerks, receptionists, urban farm workers, safe factory assembly line workers and packers, and as workers in fast food restaurants.

Teenagers should work at less than minimum wage and compete with other young adults who are working at minimum wage. They can get shuttled to and from work by their parents or use a bicycle or scooter if they are old enough. They will learn the value of money and how hard it is to make it and will be motivated to learn useful skills in school to get a better paying job upon graduation.

Yes, there will be more adult unemployment in society and those adults should invest their time, effort, ability, and achievement to reeducate themselves over the internet for free in a technological job skill if they chose not to remain on welfare but want something better.

We have become an entitlement society which feels that working at minimum wage is not worth the effort and it is better to get on welfare and get paid for no work at all. Training teenagers to work hard on the job will hopefully go a long way towards reducing this entitlement mindset and creating more appreciation for the value of working hard at something which we may not like that much as adults but which is an ideal learning experience for self-motivated teenagers.

CONCLUSION:

Teenagers are too removed from the real working world for too long and are not learning many useful skills in school which will land them a good paying job. It is time teenagers learned to work hard, interact with the public sooner, and understand that WHAT you learn in school is more important than how much time you spend learning largely useless skills such as music, physical education, literature, foreign languages, history, arts, and team sports.
