    Seems that anytime I transact business anymore, there are "issues". Delayed service, errors, etc.

    Is this a worsening problem in the United States, or, am I just noticing it more in my "old age"?


    It's rare that we go to a restaurant and get good service. Just last night, we were at a nice restaurant, the waitress forgot our silverware and gave us the wrong check. This is just one example, but, I would say without exaggeration that over half of any of our purchases, transactions etc. result in errors or problems, and, we have to check behind almost everything ....

    Probably just high turnover rates because the Right doesn't believe in Henry Ford's paradigm regarding wages.

    Cheap labor ---- Most employees have no real incentive to do a good job ------- most jobs are low wage, part-time, and temporary employment ------Employers are offering less company paid benefits ------ Employers care more about the bottom line that they do about their employees -----Workers are being asked to produce more for less money ----- Some businesses are operating short-staffed, which burdens employees and drags morale down ---- Cheap imported labor, illegal immigrant labor ------- Most good high paying industrial jobs have gone to other countries --- The new generation hasn't been taught good work ethics and responsibility ---- and workers have no desire to put out that proverbial 110% when their paychecks don't allow them to have spending money in their pockets after paying living expenses.

    I would tend to agree that the quality of service industry employees has dropped significantly in recent years. I believe it's dye to the employees no longer caring about doing a good job and only about their paycheck.

    Maybe it's because the modern workers have been taught by our modern education system that you can earn $20 an hour for producing a product that takes an hour to make and sells for $15. When they get out of college after spending 5 years earning a degree in archaic French literature they find out the should have taken more math.
