I see a number of parishioners out of work. It’s dispiriting and disheartening. And it really p***es me off that various talking heads in the media and their dittoheads in the blogosphere don’t address this more often. Like every day.
I also read and hear whining from big business in the media. Too many regulations–wah! Taxes too high–wah! How about some simple math to address the biggest problem the US faces these days?
Every business should consider hiring one person for every ten currently on its payroll. It’s only the patriotic thing to do.
Any business owners out there who want to step to the plate? On the bright side, hire that eleventh worker and then tell your neighborhood. I’d do business more readily with any business, large or small, that dared to make a sacrifice, tighten its belt and hire number 11. Wouldn’t you?
