Palveluammatit

Economist liputtaa 29.9.05 palveluammattien puolesta.
Lehti arvioi, että teollisuustyön osuus on vain 10 % USA:n työpaikoista.










"Yet there is a residual belief that making things you can drop on your toe is superior to working in accounting or hairdressing."

"
A second worry is that services are harder to export, so if developed economies make fewer goods, how will they pay for imports? But rich countries already increasingly pay their way in the world by exporting services. America has a huge trade deficit not because it is not exporting enough, but because American consumers are spending too much."

"Employment in rich countries will have to shift towards higher skilled jobs to maintain economic growth. Countries that prevent this shift taking place risk being left behind. Rather than block it, governments need to try to ameliorate the pains which change inflicts by, for example, retraining or temporarily helping those workers who lose their jobs.

People always resist change, yet sustained growth relies on a continuous shift in resources to more efficient use. In 1820, for example, 70% of American workers were in agriculture; today 2% are. If all those workers had remained tilling the land, America would now be a lot poorer."

Kommentti: Löytyisikö näistä mietteistä ohjeita Suomenkin työllisyyden parantamiseksi. Eli rohkeasti vaan laitetaan rahaa palvelusektorille. Valtion tuki perusteollisuudelle siirretään palvelusektorille ja siellä erityisesti terveydenhuoltoon ja koulutukseen. Ne ovat Sampoja, jotka tuottavat kansalle hyvinvointia. Ainakin vakavaraisten yhtiöiden, kuten Orionin tai Nokian, pitäisi pystyä rahoittamaan toimintaansa muuten kuin veronmaksajien rahoilla.
Eli
Sittenkin työllisyys saadaan kuntoon toistemme paitoja pesemällä.
