DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 25, 2006--Robert O. Snelling,
Sr. is offering free syndication of his knowledge, tips,
insights, experience and advice for getting the right job.
Robert Snelling has taken his 50-year career as founder and
former CEO of Snelling & Snelling Personnel Service and
designed a program to help people find the job that they
want. Robert O. Snelling, Sr. not only built a 450-office,
$500-million-dollar nationwide company but also was an
advisor to the Secretary of Labor, testified before
Congressional committees on employment matters and served on
President Bush's National Commission for Employment Policy.
He is still active in the job market, building a nationwide
Job Coaching and Resume firm, ROSS-HR, Inc.
"The latest example given of how to equalize pay between men and women demonstrates what happens when the government gets in the middle of free market supply and demand. The State of Minnesota, one with strong socialistic leanings, has come up with a magic wand that allows them to evaluate various jobs and equate them between men and women. One thing for sure is the state is not encouraging or even allowing men to take the jobs that the women now have that are earning 97 cents on the dollar of what men are paid in different jobs. Who tells us about this great advancement for society? Yep, you guessed it, an economist and former Lt. Governor of Massachusetts," comments Robert Snelling.
Bob Snelling, the former Chairman of Snelling & Snelling, a nationwide staffing service, says that, "Jobs have historically paid what it took to get workers... unless the wages were skewed by union or government intervention. At one time telephone operators and secretaries were male dominated positions. Then as women entered the market and were willing to work for less, the men moved on to higher paying jobs. President Lyndon Johnson was fond of saying, 'Everybody has got to have meaningful employment.' The only problem is, what is meaningful to one may not be to another. Thus we have pay differences, not only between men and women but between those of the same sex. For instance a woman can make more money as a waitress than she can in a clerical position yet there are many clerks who would not take the other job -- supply and demand at work in a free marketplace."
Bob Snelling continues, "The economist from Massachusetts tries to fluff off the fact that women have children saying it has nothing to do with a difference in wages. What she forgets is that as some work they get raises and longevity makes for higher pay. Women move in and out of the job market. They also move with the major breadwinner and that puts them at the bottom of the totem pole starting in a new job in a new town. A fact which has something to do with the infamous 'glass ceiling' we hear about. There is nothing fair about the job market. Companies exist to make a return on investment for their owners. We laud athletes who make mega-millions and chastise CEO's who do the same, each being the result of supply and demand. The same applies to men and women of all callings."
