You don't actually have any business skills, do you?
To be honest, no, my expertise is technical, computer and information security.
So what you are suggesting is that as business owner, I should spend thousands of dollars training people (during which time they generate no income) in the hopes that a few of them will stay with me long enough to recoup the cost of training
Thousands of dollars? Lets take the examples I gave. If you are an expert with Oracle, you can probably pick up MSSQL without too much trouble. If you are an expert with one version of Exchange, you can probably pick up another version without too much difficulty. As a perspective employee, t would be dishonest to say I had the experience. If there were a human with a technical background, they should know this. But if it is someone in HR using a pattern matching program, how are they supposed to know this?
-- When the reality is that many of them will take the training and leave, and many of them will turn out to be poor employees anyway. And I'm sure you are dead set against me passing those higher costs on to YOU, upon which time you'll declare me evil and greedy....
I hope your not lumping me into those Occupy people who believe the world owes them everything on a plate. Actually I *DO* pass the cost to myself. *I* paid for my CISSP certification. *I* paid for several high end technical training courses. And I still had problems getting call backs.
I think copyrights need to be dramatically shortened. I mean come on, 75 years after the DEATH of the of the author? And corporate ownership is FOREVER
I would mandate that copyrights need to be registered. Even if it is something like a dollar a year.. In that way we can identify orphan works that should be made free.
