About a month ago I came across another very awesome podcast called the "school sucks project". I've listened to perhaps 20 episodes by now. But even if you only listen to the first few you'll get a lot out of it.
Watch 7-Eleven store generic. Video 1:41. 7-Eleven whistleblower says franchises built on 'something not much different from slavery'. ABC News. Exploitation of workers is a key part of the 7-Eleven franchise network's business plan, a company insider claims.
From regular Daily Reckoning contributor David Leyonhjelm
"It seems that everyone has had a good vent about politicians’ entitlements. I agree that taxpayers’ money, otherwise known as our money, should be treated with the utmost respect. I find it as infuriating as anyone when politicians treat public funds with all the propriety of a thief driving a stolen vehicle.
But if we think this kind of thing is confined to politicians, we are kidding ourselves."
Man I wish I had discovered this information 10 years ago! Such great stuff. If you're a parent, please take the time to watch this. There is so much great information on how to raise kids properly to be confident, curious, motivated and above all, happy people.
Indeed. I wonder though whether sarcasm is helpful in this context? While its amusing, I wonder whether presenting the points in a more direct/serious way would be more helpful in terms of getting people to think?
