Sink or swim?
It’s not that simple though, is it? No matter the situation – when it comes to hold or fold, there’s always so many intricacies to consider.
Right now, the United Kingdom is facing some tough questions when it comes to the future of our economy. Meanwhile, the majority of individuals just want to go about their lives and not have to worry about the impending potential crisis. I don’t blame them.
Still, it is our economy and we have a say and a very literal hand in what happens. I’m not going to go into the details of spending power and buying power and all that overcomplicated spiel. Still, it is important to remember that the economy lives and dies on the premise of money constantly circulating through the system.
That gets hard when things cost so much and wages stay the same. Right now, prices are spiking and it’s difficult to know where the line will be drawn. It’s not black and white – that’s why it’s causing concern.
The United Kingdom is currently facing another crisis – one that directly ties into what’s happening.
There are jobs everywhere going unfilled.
Hundreds of thousands of them, in fact. How can we be facing a cost of living increase when there are hundreds of thousands of unfilled positions sitting there?
It’s because our current employment system does not work.
When individuals aren’t even given the option to sink or swim – that’s a real issue. People deserve the opportunity to work, and as I’ve said countless times, anyone that wants to work should not be denied the opportunity.
This is especially truer than ever now that we’re in our current pivotal circumstances.
So how? How do we fill these job roles?
We’re getting no where with the current system.
It’s time for a change.
