I respect your perspective. We need a solution. Now I am no partisan, but there was a speech the other day that seemed to intone the exact same observed problem.change in American culture that is anti-trade skill and physical labor.
ME? I think that we are at a bit of a crossroads...we have been specializing people into tinier and tinier skill sets, so an electrician or a A/C guy on staff is specialized in the same way a software engineer or a physicist or a journalist is specialized, artifactual of the 100 year old 'factory business model' started by Ford's assembly line. Thus it is hard for the employer and the employee to find common ground...and hence leads to scavenging or cannibalization by competitors when good staff are known by their public reputation.
we made people into 'human resources', and then we found out they were not resources at all
