The HR Dept. – How Socialism Kills Economic Progress
by Tom Balek, Contributing Author : A common-sense principle of business is that managers must have the authority to hire and fire at will. After all, the very reason for a business to exist is to generate a profit for the owners and investors. So managers will compete for the best employees to maximize returns, just as they compete for customers by trying to provide the best product or service at the best price.

The result is companies are staffed with many unqualified, unmotivated, and sometimes underpaid minorities ( often H1B visa holders ) who know they can’t be fired. The “Peter Principle” (individuals are promoted beyond their level of competence) is rampant in man
