YOUTH CREATING OWN JOBS IN NEW ZEALAND – CORPORATE YOUNG ADULTS TEE SHIRTS LITE-THINKING
Suggestions to create young adults jobs: Youth should be supported more to create their own jobs. They make a promise to themselves. Then they do it. Their hearts will be less disappointed when they fulfill their own promise to their own generation.
Steven Joyce had a few suggestions, when I last blogged on that topic. I am conscious that I must try and be encouraging more so than a stinging critic. The latter all too easy to do, if you survived uber-competitive PR circles in Hollywood, The Enterainment Capital of the World as I did at one time in life. The toughest training ground a Kiwi with a Media degree, could ever make it through.
So, putting a happy cap on. Here’s what I think about the youth job market.
1. The current government favors the 50+, already established property buyer (at this current snap shot). Their rhetoric is largely geared towards that person. Fantastic if you’re one of those people in NZ. Yet for youth, what’s in it for them?
2. Starting your own company – form a youth gang, and like a ‘boy band’ or ‘a girl group’ work up your own products, staff, team, sales, markets, export markets. Nothing to lose in the current political environment. Do it for you!
3. Education: Should encourage students to start their own companies (eg: a study group could actually become a start up company of students). Then the tertiary, training providers supply the skills, knowledge networking provisions, and the right environment – to help students and their emerging companies and ideas – be stand alone earners when the students graduate. Or, the students are being supported to create their own jobs. That’s more real, and should be a norm given current economic data at end of year result of NZ society.
4. Angel Investors. Wealthy white people’s kids are leaping ahead. Why? Because GFC years were designed for wealthy kids to maintain a lead. If you don’t have wealthy parents, where does this leave NZ young people? They get no house deposit from their folks (eg: $30k-$40k). They don’t get a job from the folks friends networks either. Does the average NZ kid stand a chance? Yes… if angel investors step up and do some good, they still do. That needs to happen more.
5. Science, calculus, physics, financial literacy needs to be taught to all youth, not just wealthy kids in private schools. Or wealthy kids recieving the knowledge should run tutorials for the poorer kids after school and teach what they know. They could charge kids for the lessons too. Earn pocket money.
6. Packaging and freight. Youth can grow the economy if they think of product to export. Product out of NZ equals money into NZ. Money into NZ more than money spent within (eg: a debt narrative) needs to be broken off this generation’s shoulders in the current political climate. Packaging, freight, marketing abroad, sales networks abroad – is how youth must think more.
7. Have people who wear ties, really helped young New Zealanders? Wouldn’t a tee shirt with a tie printed on it, (like our Corporate Youth culture tee above) be more helpful for youth – to get around sabotage, obstacle courses and general mean unthoughtfulness of an older generation (or whom I am now onetoo :) who refuse to grow up and help young adults more in a way, we ourselves were helped by an older generation once in NZ, that we seem to have forgotten about. So, youth would do better to steer clear of those talking a big talk wearing a tie, whose actions haven’t necessarily amounted to much for Young Adults realistic dreams being realized in NZ.
8. Youth must create their own economic culture for their own ideas and own companies to thrive. That new culture is also what NZ needs culturally too, feeding back in to a new NZ society. We gotta get less stale.
Just a thought. Get lighter, less stifling and more active… a tee sort of sums up that do more than talk vibe. The talking hasn’t worked a tonne of a lot.
