Death of the work ethic

By Bill Osmulski, MacIver News Service

MADISON — As employers struggle to find workers willing to show up, public schools are teaching that time management and schedules are just so much ‘white supremacy.”

Lessons like that are leading to the death of the work ethic, and creating a formidable obstacle to solving Wisconsin’s labor crisis.

MacIver News Service has the story.

  • Jobs are out there that we would die for when we were young. Problem is “not at all” the wages. Problem is human nature. If I can sit on my butt and do nothing and get paid for it; I will.
    I have 4 grown children who are all Christians and I would never accept them sitting on their butts doing nothing. And they are working hard at their chosen profession, knowing that brings glory to the One who gave them life. We live in a country that is turning its back on Jesus Christ and thinking only of self. As a 71 year old who worked until age 70, I am ashamed of those in America who don’t appreciate the God given opportunities to better oneself and aren’t willing to work their way up the ladder. All four of my children’s families are doing that. Our culture is declining. That is a big part of the problem

  • There are more pieces to the puzzle however. Many Employers are paying enough. The minimum wage is $12.50 per hour and way too many businesses want good workers yet are paying below min. wage. (and yes, it is $12.75 per hour – adjust for inflation).
