Admit it my corporate queen, you like to read me.
I have no one on my ignore list as I don't discriminate against people and am indeed open to other points of view. I 'celebrate diversity'. Maybe ya'll lefties should try that in your new democrat party?
If a man has 50 tons of sand to move, and he wants to move it all in one shift, and he has fifty small trucks that can carry one ton each, he needs fifty drivers to drive those trucks.
If a man has 50 tons of sand to move, and he wants to move it all in one shift, and he has ten big trucks that can carry five tons each, he needs ten drivers to drive those trucks.
See how that works?
Got it. So then wouldn't 5,000 people with wheelbarrows moving that sand even create more jobs? According to your logic (which, logically, is valid), yes, all those people with wheelbarrows moving that sand down the road will create exponentially more jobs.
But at what cost? Using either, the 20 smaller trucks or the 5,000 people with wheelbarrows:
1. Increased labor costs
2. Decreased productivity
3. Customer unhappiness with the inefficiency in product delivery, which increases their costs.
4. More congestion and disruption on roads on the delivery route.
And what do all that translate into?
1. Significantly higher cost they have to charge for their product in terms of dollars charged to their customer.
2. Significantly higher costs incurred by the customer to 'take' the product (unload/process).
3. Significant time increase by the customer to get all the product they need in a certain amount of time.
So what do Nos. 1-3 translate into?
They'll buy their sand from someone else, thus your 50 truck sand manufacturing plant and delivery company will lose not only 50 'make work' jobs, but the local government will lose the tax base of those 50 jobs, not to mention tax revenue loss due to another company closing its doors and property taxes decreasing.
You really should keep me off your 'ignore' list corporate girl.
I'm trying to teach you things about the real world, the world outside of madison, that could help you.
