My Job, Your Job, and Hillary Clinton

PolitiChicks.comRecently Hillary Clinton told us “corporations and businesses don’t create jobs.” I’m still wondering how she came to this conclusion. Two out of the last three days, I went to a business that created my job. The business that created my job could tomorrow close the doors, and I’d be out of a job.

Who creates my next job?  Hillary Clinton? No, I don’t think so, although she could, if she were a politician, create an atmosphere for businesses and corporations to think about creating jobs in the United States.

Who feeds my children if I don’t have a job?  Hillary Clinton? No, I don’t think so, although if she were a politician, she could continue to put millions of Americans on food stamps instead of creating an environment for businesses and corporations to think about creating jobs in the United States.

Hillary Clinton needs to understand that American women do not need to dependent on government agencies to survive; American women and their families need a lot of ethical leadership.

So corporations and businesses don’t create jobs?  I’m not sure what Hillary Clinton was thinking when she made such a silly statement. It’s fairly easy to understand basic business concepts, but it’s not so easy to understand the complex issues that local, state and federal government agencies and politicians create in the American and global business environment.

How are job created?

  • An individual or group of individuals create an idea to make money.
  • A business plan is developed.
  • Financial support is gained to develop the business. Financial support can be gained by a variety of methods: friends, family members, personal loans, angel investors, small business administration (government), nonprofit microlender, individual’s personal funds and/or moms make an YouTube video to get around the madness that Ms. Clinton thinks create jobs at small businesses.
  • Belly Rest Pillow Tag Rap IndieGoGo Campaign
  • Corporations and businesses hire employees directly, hire consultants and/or outsource creating jobs.
  • Corporations and businesses open up to make money.

Economist and politicians will argue all day long about who creates jobs, but Americans know exactly who creates jobs and who decides to lay off employees: corporations and businesses. We must, as Americans, understand the argument between politicians and economist because neither group directly creates jobs (we’ll leave the creation of government jobs out of this conversation), but has a huge impact on corporations and business that affect the ability for jobs to be created and hugely affect American lives.Do the government and politicians affect corporations and business?

The government creates rules such as tax systems and economic policies that create frameworks that corporations and businesses must constantly try to figure out. These actions do affect job creation. The impact can be viewed as a ”job creation action” in theory ONLY with a positive or negative affect. An example of a positive impact for employee bottom line and politicians was the Family Medical leave Act (FEMA). An example of a negative impact is the corporate tax rate: America currently has the highest corporate tax rate in the world (Tax foundation). Unfortunately politicians and economist can argue all day long and wish that they created jobs, but the bottom line of a corporation or business decides the end results. We must all remember that the decision of job creation is more critical now than ever before with the global economy, global stability and technology.

American politicians need to understand one basic business concept: They don’t create jobs.
