It is long past the time to begin empowering each other across our great land. Businesses and employees, clients and potential clients. We seem to have forgotten our American nature, to band together for the greater good, for all of our futures. Turn on the news, listen to any radio talk show, or eavesdrop on any dinner conversation around the country, and you’ll find people talking about the value of hard work. Since the pandemic struck, it seems two schools of thought exist, and perhaps those schools were brewing long before COVID reared its ugly head.
There is the one side that expects regular unemployment checks to extend out to infinity, propping up an economy that is not doing so well. Obviously, that thinking comes from not wanting people to go hungry, to lose their homes or the roofs over their heads, or to lose the ability to feed their children. Fair enough. We don’t want that either. The other side laments the lack of good workers in this country. Want ads abound, businesses are desperate for reliable workers, crops are dying on the vine, and some companies are having to close their doors for good. All because, they say, kids these days don’t want to work, and many workers have no incentive to go back to work when they receive a paycheck from the government that does not seem to be going away. And we say, again, fair enough. This reality is undeniable.
To be clear, this post is not political in nature. It is American in nature. It is business in nature. It is humanity in nature. We support our American workers. And we can see both sides of the debate. An unending stream of unemployment and stimulus checks may stimulate the economy, but it will not stimulate American business. And yes, a lack of work ethic does seem to be bleeding into many young people. But, and here is the big caveat, we believe that the backbone of American pride and integrity still stands strong. We can say that without reservation because we are on the ground every single day with American workers, both RMS employees and our partners and clients in business. Enough of that spirit, call it “old school” if you will, exists to spread across our nation and stimulate our fellow countrymen. We believe this stimulus can be done by empowering each other.
Empowering Each Other
We support our employees and our partners, our clients and our friends, by leading by example and by celebrating others who do the same. If our clients are any evidence, and we believe they are, then it is clear that people, for the most part, want a purpose, they want to work for something, and they want to believe in something. Each of us has a responsibility to our fellow men and women to show them that there is still much here to believe in, to work for, to find purpose in. When we do this, lead by example, we empower each other to do the same.
Our partners across the country, our farmers, shop owners, ag feed producers, brewers, and distillers, embody the American spirit, and we want to take this moment to celebrate them and all the men and women out there like them. And believe us out here on the ground, the news, the radio talk shows, the podcasts, and social media do not see what we see. Good, hard working people, putting in an honest day’s work, putting food on the table, and putting people first. We are in the majority, and we are here to empower each other. We believe the American spirit is alive and well and right in front of us every day. We only have to open our eyes.
