National Hiring Day Discussion
Readers, we have a serious unemployment problem in this country. The best solutions, such as National Hiring Day (called by Musea), or One Job For America suggest corporate responsibility as part of the solution.
That is something that the media refuses to talk about. They talk about individuals and the job problem, or the government reaction to the job problem, but hardly ever corporate responsibility in the job problem. Here is some discussion on the issue.
THE MEDIA IS PART OF THE PROBLEM
The media has become part of the jobs problem. They have refused to cover jobs solutions that contain corporate responsibility. Two main jobs idea are National Hiring Day and One Job For America.
The media is part of the problem. They have stopped being fair and balanced. Though they talk about jobs and the economy daily through hundreds of outlets, they can’t find time to talk about workable job solutions IF they suggest corporate responsibility.
We have a unique problem here on this show, NPR, and other media outlets. The media’s refusal to consider job solutions has become part of the jobs problem. The media is not balanced, and that’s become a key part of the problem Example National Hiring Day
There is a solution to the jobs problem and it could quickly put hundreds of thousands of people back to work. But not as long as the media refuses to talk about it. It is not pro left or right. It is not from any corporation, it’s outside the government control, it’s totally voluntary, and helps all with little sacrifice from anyone.
National Hiring Day #2 is suggested for March 15,2011. This is a day that corporations are encouraged to hire new employees. Corporations are called on to put patriotism first and help their country in hard times. Those corporations that cannot hire, are asked to stop firing for that month.
HELP CORPORATIONS TOO/?
Some question the idea. They don’t question how this would help those out of a job, or the economy; they question how it would help corporations. Well here’s how:
National Hiring Day, what an easy way to help all. Let’s say you run a small business, by hiring one person, you are a part of this. Many others hire one or more. Then because you (and others) hired one or more, thousands have gotten jobs, lost insecurity and worry, and are ready to buy from you and others. AND they have a good reason to support your company. Just one hire from enough small businesses and the whole country has a big boost. You help a little and get good will from thousands that find jobs, in return.
National Hiring Day was first called for by Musea the 18 year old Dallas art and media zine.
TO THOSE WHO THINK CORPORATIONS CAN’T BE BOTHERED TO HELP
Well, I understand your feelings, but let’s let the corporations respond for themselves . They can turn their back on the country out in the open, or they can support it -
The first not to respond is the 100 media outlets I’ve sent the idea to! But if we can get the idea beyond a media that talks about jobs problems daily, but can’t find room for this, then we will see.
Bottom line of greed is really bad business though. I for one, when I have a choice, will support those corporations that help out, and will stop supporting those that don’t – that’s my bottom line and the line of many many many Americans. Business it’s up to you to help solve the problem or be a part of the problem.
I think there is a growing pressure from many who find this two part economy not quite fair anymore. You and I for example. Sadly the media has not responded – shows that they are on the corporate side more than the worker side – Strange that every media news show, talks about joblessnes s but they won’t talk about National Hiring Day.
Kinda wonder how fair they really are.”
SITTING ON LOTS OF PROFITS
Remember too the recent USA Today quote from 1/4/11/ “Companies Cash Stash Grows”: Companies are doing everything they can to to get rid of cash – short of hiring people – but the moola just keeps mounting.
CORPORATIONS TAKE THE LEAD
When it comes to job creation, I think corporations have to take the lead, not the President, and not the workers.
MEDIA REFUSES TO BE FAIR
The main problem with jobs is the medias refusal to consider new ideas like National Hiring Day #2. There are solutions that are non political, and demand very little sacrifice from anyone. What it does is ask for a very very very very very small amount of voluntary patriotism from corporations..
The real job story is the media’s refusal to talk about the first National Hiring Day in January 2011 – a good solution to spark the job recovery. That includes about 100 news shows that talk about jobs daily including HP.
National Hiring Day #2 is suggested for a month or two from now. This is a day that corporations are encouraged to hire new employees. Corporations are called on to put patriotism first and help their country in hard times. Those corporations that cannot hire, are asked to stop firing for that month. The day was suggested by the 18 year old Dallas art and media zine Musea.
