Looking carefully at that which is unseen.

Proving a point – what’s a “good job?”

From a link on Naked Capitalism regarding austerity policy in Greece, the quote: “In a very competitive job market, Greek parents sought to
equip their children to secure a job as a civil servant.”

So. A job that produces nothing except rules, noted for stifling the private sector, in a country that’s beat out by Yemen for business formation, down there at 100, is something that’s sought after?

I don’t freakin’ care that Greeks “work more hours” than Germans do – when it comes to work, it’s not a question of “quantity,” it’s a question of “quality,” and it sure seems like Greece has missed the boat on just what KIND of work they should be turning out. Ruling others is not something that’s either productive, nor grounds to be a sought after job to be proud of.

And that’s speaking as someone who has exactly that kind of job (as one of several).
