There is ongoing talk about the increase in the living standards of the workers. The popular perspective is that they are unions and the government which is improving the living standards.
Another popular perspective is that large companies headquarter relocations are good for the economy. So governments are bidding to each other for every new company headquarter relocation.
Unfortunately, all politicians ignore the fact that small businesses would bring the same result if they had the results. They would also have the opportunity to bring increased living standards.
When it comes to regulation we see just the same. When regulation should be changed to create some new economic activity than it is something which just happens.
Small businesses are competing for workers. Large companies and government organizations are not doing this. If we look at the benefits for workers than it is clear.
More businesses are competing for the skills of workers. They need to give benefits. This is where benefits in the USA are coming from.
Unfortuantly the bureaucrats are not realizing this. They are all competing for big employers. They are not fighting for small businesses, they are not fighting for the worker’s conditions.
When we look at something else what government bureaucrats believe in is equal working. Or those who are disabled should also work. They have a chance when there is a shortage of workers. But how will a new HQ force a shortage of workers? They will attract the workers for the headquarter at the same time.
So when will politicians realize that it is time to get policies to support small and medium-sized ventures? When will they move to successful economic policies?
