Who else gets paid for work they may or may not do?

Why do "Job Creators" need money upfront, especially since they received so much during the Bush Era tax breaks and failed to do the job we paid them for, which was to create jobs?  Why can't we pay those "Job Creators" after they've created a job and only for those jobs they create?

An economy lesson from our past

An economy lesson from our past | If I can come up solutions, why can't our leaders? | Scoop.it

Think like Henry Ford.  One of the greatest pioneers, entreprenuers and businessmen in history knew the economy would freeze if only the likes of his stature had any money.

 

Could it be that too many business leaders today don't actually make anything?  In a world where too many of the super wealthy make money by out-bidding everyone else in the country, is the foresight that Henry Ford exhibited an idea that has seen its time pass?  In a country where the laws have been rewritten so the biggest polluters are no longer held accountable for their pollution, should we expect anything other than the situation we now find ourselves?

 

If all of the wealth is funneled to the few, who's left to spend money is our stalling economy?

Keep Higher Education Affordable

Keep Higher Education Affordable | If I can come up solutions, why can't our leaders? | Scoop.it

To keep interest rates on student loans low, why not offer them an alternative way to pay down the interest on their loans.

 

I suggest that, in a time when jobs are scarce, volunteering their time after graduation could serve as a mean to give back in lieu of cash.  Until such time that a recent graduate finds a job, it might prove beneficial to allow them to work in city, state or federal or charitable organization job to pay the interest and/or principal down on their loans.

 

Each student would still have the opportunity to switch back to monetary payments depending on the status of their  financial situation.

 

The benefit to the taxpayer is that government and charitable services will get the needed personnel to continue providing their service(s).

 

The benefits to the graduate is that they acquire the skills that will benefit them when they do land their first ideal job.  They will be getting the experience that employers hope to see in even their newest recruits.

Help Injured Veterans Get The Assistance They Deserve

Help Injured Veterans Get The Assistance They Deserve | If I can come up solutions, why can't our leaders? | Scoop.it

We have 12 million prospective employees.  We have a multitude of injured Vets waiting for service.  Let's help the unemployed help our disabled Vets by volunteering at Veteran's Administrations to get claims processed.

 

When the floors of VAs are literally buckling under the weight of veteran's disability claims, why shouldn't we utilize those who are willing to work to lighten the load.

The unemployed have skills, let's utilize them

The unemployed have skills, let's utilize them | If I can come up solutions, why can't our leaders? | Scoop.it

Those who are still unemployed after six months can put in ten hours per week to maintain their benefits.

 

The benefit to taxpayers is that this work can compensate for those city, state and federal employees laid off in the past few years.

 

The benefit to the individual is that they can maintain their skillset, legitimately claim to be gainfully employed, while continuing their job searches.
