How low can you go?
A moment of frustration and despair before returning to office
Where are the people?
What’s wrong with American business? They’re too busy amassing cash and less interested in running their business effectively with proper professional staffing .Our Middle Managers , skilled project Managers no longer exist in the new dystopian world of business. Knowledgeable It people are too expensive , I suppose and Big Business forgot that they keep all our systems safe and maintain customer relations and data.
6 months ago my son thought there would be a need for skilled IT professionals when Windows 10 debuted. Big business was not hiring and they’re still not hiring though 1.3 million corporation’s and hospitals and government have been disabled by cyber hackers in 155 Nations. Will we respond to this crisis properly? Will America be proacive? Don’t bet on it. Our Congress and businesses are consumed with short term profits, only. They have entered “late Capitalism”
Microsoft is not to blame, blame Big business’! Trouble shooting was neglected and systems are vulnerable because Big Business colluding with Government enablers exercised poor judgement. We prefer to cater to the needs of the few at the expense of the many.
This weekend, I encountered “Late Capitalism”, first hand. There were storms in New York and Savannah causing chaos on the ground as flights were cancelled or delayed indefinitely. According to Delta personnel delayed and cancelled flights have been the norm for the last 2 months. The FAA controllers are under manned and don’t coordinate scheduling with the airlines who are under staffed as well. Rather then rerouting or corrdinating exitisting flights, chaos on the ground ensues as passengers are left stranded in cities. A good computer system could coordinate with the controllers, schedule flights and update passengers, limiting frustration and a lack of customer service on the ground.
Instead of 36 people flying to JFK Saturday night 19 of us flew out. The flight was one third full. Lack of system control and bad policies prove to be more costly then proper manning and coordination of flight functions. The travelling public is paying for 40% profit margins and getting very little in return. Our wings have been clipped along with the plane’s. We’re being short changed and neglected at the expense of a greedy short sighted few.
These are Two examples of mismanagement that are hurting “we the People “. Soon, “Late Capitalism” will impact Big Business pocket books as well. Lack of planning for our future is destroying America. The pursuit of enormous Profits are destroying America’s vision. Perhaps it’s time to think about the needs of a well running business and customer service. Then Big Business can survive and thrive with a secure dedicated employee and customer base.
“we the People” hate Big Business as much as Government . The culture has to change back to a value added policy of service. Service to the customer, service for we the people”. We’re paying our tax dollars and now we expect equal payment of Big Businesses’ fair share, as well. No more tax cuts , they encourage greed. Pay more into the system, hire back the IT professionals and other Middle Managers and let’s reinvent good American history.. I remember a time when Corporations acted on behalf of their employees , valuing and rewarding them. Increased revenue will follow. As the Middle Class and the working poor become more prosperous they spend. We’d start to resolve our Country’s ills, if we paid a living wage to more folks.
We’d also see a return to family values and less opioid addiction, if people were less distressed and able to put food on their tables.
Our era of greed is at an end. It will collapse like a deck of cards. Disabling systems is only a system of our failure to maintain and fix anything .
We can do better. We have before. Let’s put our Patriotic duty first and restart our culture of excellence. Think what you would need , if we had the money to improve our lives. We do have the Power if we stand together with a united voice. The money exits. We can pursue the American Dream of life , liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
