Earn $30 or More an Hour with These Two-Year Degrees!

So says the headline in Yahoo “Hot Jobs.”

Thirty dollars an hour is the national average. Those wages are going to vary dramatically from place to place, so is availability. The article is true in the literal sense, in other words, not really.

Is it ethical to sell, sell, sell, until there is no final customer available and you’re screaming your ad slogans into the wind?

If someone were to make us a good decent legitimate offer in the job or education area, would we be able to find it? I mean, after the bright colors, the incredible salaries, the “you can do it at home” stuff, is there any legitimacy left? Can we trust anybody?

It’s the distance, you see, the lack of contact, humanity.

Look, if I walk up to you and tell you person to person, face to face, that there’s a job, you have all the skills of humankind developed over ten of thousands of years to decide if I’m telling you the truth or not. As humans we relate to one another.

The first step away from person to person was probably a sign, then a newspaper ad, then a magazine ad and then radio, and, well, you get the picture.

It is true that we have now the opportunity to buy millions of different things all over the world (and be stolen from, lied to, or manipulated from as well) but sometimes I would just like to talk to another person when doing business.

    “It is true that we have now the opportunity to buy millions of different things all over the world (and be stolen from, lied to, or manipulated from as well) but sometimes I would just like to talk to another person when doing business.”

    This I found to be rather striking para. The personal touch is diminishing at a very fast pace and may be totally removed in not too distant a future.

    Selling is a skill that we acquire at a very young, that is when we con our parents into buying toys and other items. As we progress and become parents ourselves, we do tend to lie and manipulate our young ones inorder to deny them products that in our opinion are unsuitable.
