Privatised Job Seeking- just another opportunity for rorts.
Call me old fashioned but I really believe in lifetime public servants paid a reasonable wage to do an honest job. They do not need ‘incentives’, ‘bonuses’, ‘commissions’ or other gimmicks.
Salesmen have always rather revolted me when they judge everyone by how
much commission they made on their sales, as some sort of macho
indicator, irrespective of whether the people persuaded to buy the
product actually needed it or could afford it.
As these ‘incentives’ have taken over almost every aspect of our lives,
naturally there are more and more people more concerned with making
money than actually delivering the service. And the end point of the
process is corruption, where you do not care whether the service is even
given as long as you get the money. Here is just another example, for
the sake of completeness.
Some of us long for the day when the
public service is rebuilt, with reasonable people having lifetime jobs
and doing a reasonable job for a reasonable wage.
