Doctors say that more and more business men are afflicted with ulcers. Several causes are to blame, such as labor problems, keen competition, and high overhead and other expenses. While sympathy is extended to the businessmen afflicted with these situations, I wonder what would happen if some of those men worked under the circumstances of some of the elders I know. Just suppose:
1. That you were never able to see all your workers on the job at the same time.
2. That a slight headache or “company coming” justified a worker taking the day off.
3. That rain and threatening weather kept 30 to 40% of your workers away from the job.
4. That your workers worked only if they feel like it and when questioned about phases of their work, would immediately show their tempers and threaten to quit.
5. That when slightly dissatisfied with some minor thing in the company-they would threaten to quit and become part of another company.
6. That after you have committed yourself for several thousand dollars’ worth of work during the year, only a faithful few helped you succeed.
7. That week after week your employees would misappropriate funds belonging to the owner of the company, which would have gone into the working capital of the company.
8. That your business was the largest in the world yet was supported only by free will contributions.
9. That most of your employees thought that just coming every time was working
10. That your workers felt no obligation to explain where they had been when they were absent.
