Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/30/20

Benjamin Franklin, Polymath - Kurt Cagle - Medium

Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn.”   —   Benjamin Franklin

(A very astute quote from one of our more endearing founding fathers.  I wish that today’s corporate employers would take this quote to heart.  A little something called “on the job training”, and “hands on experience” used to be much more prevalent.  When I began my banking career, back in 1980, I had absolutely zero background in either finance or accounting.  But, they saw that I was a college graduate, and that I could easily learn what I needed to know.  Through mentoring, and experience gained while on the job, I went from being a two week temp to a low-to-mid level manager, in a career that served me well for 24 years, until the downsizing, as a result of my division being sold off.  Small businesses still get it.  But, the corporate guys are more interested in hiring only kids who are specialized in the areas of study that apply to their positions.  I think that’s a shame.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Corporate culture has evolved from using employees like people to using them like machines.

    In a little while there won’t be any people… just machines.
    Notice how Amazon runs their fulfillment warehouses. If the people don’t keep up with the pace of the robots, they’ll get run over.

    “How robots are transforming Amazon warehouse jobs — for better and worse”

    The corporate overlords get richer, the poor get poorer, and the middle class vanishes. Maybe all these “novel viruses” are out to spare us??? — YUR
