I could hire 12 people with €760 net salary, but I don't. I tell you why.
Jakob Andor does some calculating.
I think Jakab recognizes the problem but draws the false conclusions. Labour laws and taxes are there for good reasons. Although the Hungarian market and the political system may be corrupted, this is an issue which especially has to do with the point of view of the clients.
Many customers in this field still hold the opinion that students or other people who are willing to work for a very low salary can design or build the same websites etc. as professionals. They don't realize what difference work experience or reliable customer service can make.
EUR 37 per hour are nothing in other sectors of business.
"I could...I would..." - real entrepreneurs DO.
I guess nearly everyone who ever started a business had Jakob's problems. However, the main lessons to learn are to take risks and to be able to cope with them. Every entrepreneur had those sleepless nights, tossing and turning whether he / she could pay the employees' salaries for another month or not. In the end, you must be able to cope with it and go on. That's one point why you can't argue in favour of 100% flexible contracts and at the same forget your own responsibility as an employer.
Of course I have to admit that I argue from a really comfortable German position. On the other hand, the author seems to generally fear potential employees and thus misses out their potential to grow his business. Is he really (more)a born entrepreneur..?
Sorry! So far none of the people you follow recommended this story.
