    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    It’s not so much about who is or isn’t owed anything, but more about maintaining a functioning society. Humanity chose to put a price tag on everything we need to survive. So we have to make it all work one way or another.

    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    Don't take what I say as negatively. Personally I am very positive. I will quit when I am dead and will find some way no matter what to achieve my goals. Nobody will get in my way. My comments are more societal commentary.

    To be fair we don’t fully know how “jobs” worked in ancient societies.

    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    One thing that really gets in my nerves is where a person will be working full time. Working their butt off and struggling. So someone will say “get a second job” “work more hours”. Don’t they realise that if everyone does that then it will become normal and suddenly everyone will just be...

    Why should an employee have confidence in your business?

    This just reminded me of something. I love hearing how people start businesses. Mostly because I like the stories but also because I want to see what I might be able to replicate. There are always those who start with money so I cross them off my list after I hear their cool story. But one...

    Why should an employee have confidence in your business?

    Yeah but wouldn’t the CNC’s be a business expense where as, the boats and cars a personal expense? Seriously though I’d also be the guy to spend my own money on CNC’s.

    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    I am not a religious man but that doesn’t make what you are trying to do any less honerable. I see a lot of people taking family life and taking many things in life for granted. They just don’t know life without certain things. I am 36 years old. Always wanted the traditional life as that is...

    Why should an employee have confidence in your business?

    As an experienced welder myself I can definitely say it is a lower cost barrier to entry than the machining trade.

    Why should an employee have confidence in your business?

    I agree completely. Your post is basically the point I was trying to get across. In fact you bring up an interesting thing that is often in my mind. I see many people going down some odd niche route in a small business. They are usually emotionally invested and driven rather than economically...

    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    A person earning $60,000 per year here would pay about $12,000 in tax. On top of publicly funded health care here in New Zealand, I choose to have private health insurance. I have the best I can buy in New Zealand. It is $25 a week for me. Also private medical costs are less here. I have never...

    Let me tell you something about socialism. I’ll use health care as an example. There are lots of problems with socialised anything. But you guys in the USA are being taken to the cleaners with your per person healthcare costs. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you guys pay more for health...

    Joe Biden calls for tripling of tariffs on Chinese steel

    I have heard many Chinese people talk about that. There is an ingrained cultural thing of sacrifice today to benefit tomorrow. They think multiple generations ahead.

    Cut Knurling

    I’m going to pay attention to this. Out of all the things a person can do on a lathe I never had much success knurling. It was such a rare thing to need to do that I never got much practice and when I had to do it I sucked.

    Why should an employee have confidence in your business?

    Yeah my biggest fundamental financial mistake that I made from the age of 18 to now (36) was having an expectation that a day job/career would allow me enough income to live the life I want to live and allow me to buy equipment to start my own business so that I can create my own legacy. When...

    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    Have you been attending my local town meetings? This is the crap my hometown where I live is dealing with right now. Nobody wants to pay for anything they don’t use. Problem is I live in a town where most everyone has no culture and if barely leaves their house. If we ran on that kind of funding...

    Why should an employee have confidence in your business?

    That was actually a decent response to my question. Most don’t even say any of that.
