Short & To the Point: It’s Jobs Shipped to Foreigners and Robo-answering-message-menu-machines, Stupid
We hear complaints that unemployment checks cause laziness in the work force. I have to ask, who really are the lazy ones? I believe the lazy ones are the CEOs who have mastered plans for 1000% rise in salaries and bonuses, take pensions and benefits from their employees (the hard working ones), and hoard the money, doing little for America while trying to avoid paying taxes. They put customer service jobs overseas so Americans often do not get hired to do such jobs. They utilize the most ludicrous computerized systems to answer customer service calls with questions galore which never address the reason for a customer to call, then follow up with the customer service human being asking some of the same questions again! In the corporation where I once worked, we would classify this as a waste of time for the business. It’s not the unemployment checks making people lazy. There are many other reasons. One is this: it’s customer service jobs hipped overseas and rob-answering-message-menu-machines, stupid.
