Nobody Owes You a JobBy
I read today that General Motors plans to close one of their truck plants, because people are moving toward more energy efficient vehicles due to high gas prices. However, the workers who belong to a union want the plant to remain open and have blocked other workers from going to the plant to work.
If there’s one thing I’ve been emphasizing throughout my blog is that you need to take control of your career and empower yourself. Relying on unions or governments to support you is the wrong approach. No business should stay open in order to provide you with a job. It needs to stay open to make a profit and when it makes business sense.
If you’re working in an SUV plant you might have had a clue that your job is at risk. If you’re in IT you’re aware of the trends of outsourcing and new growth areas such as SOA. The bottom line is no one person or company owes you a job.
