Paradigms and reflections: Work: A right or a duty? How can employment grow, the State deficit and the Public Debt decrease and we have a sustainable social model?
FIRST PARADIGM: EMPLOYMENT MOVES THROUGH THE ENTREPRENEUR.
The employer assumes higher risks than those assumed by an employee. Therefore, the social model must minimize its risks:
Designing a fair, proportionate tax model that promotes growth through reinvestment and job creation.
Reducing bureaucracy and streamlining processes, which should result in an optimal dimensioning of the Administrations (currently one in two euros of the budgets are to pay civil servants): obsession to do more and better with less.
Making the association between the company’s economic-financial health more flexible with the ability to adjust quickly and with minimal costs and risks for it.
Providing the Administration with values that prioritize service to the citizen, efficiency and honesty with the management of citizens’ money
Reducing subsidies and aid, and replacing them with social recognition of companies that clearly promote a sustainable and exemplary economy (generation of stable and quality employment, ethics and social reputation, investment in R+D+i, etc.). Breaking with the very Spanish culture of: What does the State give me if…? As a note that reinforces this statement, in a meeting with former minister Cristina Garmendia at the Intercontinental Hotel in Madrid, when she was explaining the Plan for the Promotion of Innovation in Spain, during question time, the first six were in the same direction… : And what aid does the State give if…? What deductions do we have if…? What subsidies will we have if….? etc Showing with sad clarity that this culture has been inoculated with enormous intensity among the current Spanish business community.
SECOND PARADIGM: THE MORE DEBT, THE LESS EMPLOYMENT
It’s normal… how does a company create employment if the interest it must pay on its debts is high? How much money do Spaniards, families, companies, etc., have to pay annually to pay the debts that we have as a sovereign Nation? What if that money was in the hands of these companies and families? How much improvement in competitiveness would Spain have and therefore our companies? How much employment would be generated? If we take as a reference that each Spaniard pays 1,000 euros a year for interest on the debt, which could rise to 1,200 euros when rates rise (not too long…), that, based on employment, taking an average annual salary of 26,000 euros, it would come out that the cost of paying the interest on the debt is the payment of 2,000,000 jobs.
It is a figure that is only intended to refer to public debt, associating it with the number of annual jobs it means. But I do intend to indicate that it is another of the priorities that we must address.
THIRD PARADIGM: WORK AS A RIGHT OR AS A DUTY
Perspective makes you see things differently, you just have to see Scher.
Another perspective from the “mountain” of law, makes us see work as a good that must be promoted and preserved by the State, which assumes the generation of employment as an “obligation”.
In addition, there is the perspective from the mountain of “duty”, discover a job that lies in the “obligation” to generate an attitude in the person of work, effort, preparation and continuous improvement, demand and excellence in tasks. that they are made. That is to say, it is the family, the school and the examples of heroes and men who are seen as successful in society, which inoculate in the individual the need to be competitive and productive in order to be worthy of finding a job for which be able to live with dignity.
The first perspective places the accent on “looking at others” so that they “give me a job”, and the second on the individual, who with his attitude, generates self-employment, companies and a social dynamism that makes people and Societies in general grow. . Excellent to reflect on this labor day.
