Firstly in a country with 37% unemployment, I would question who needs who more. And of course we mustn't forget that automation and free higher education, will further prejudice the balance of need you describe. Because skills will become narrowed and less rare.
Now of course I know that certain jobs, I think certain computer programming jobs, have a crazy rate of conversion(the number of jobs offered and the actual amount of available candidates) but this is the exception rather than the rule.
Second: > chadlingard If they are worthy candidates and they know the employer wants them, then they can renegotiate the offer, benefits, but nothing that the employer is not prepared to give, ultimately. So yes, if you are good you have better chance but ultimately it is not up to you.
I don't disagree completely with your statement but it does sound like that truism of 'business needs us, more than we need them'.
That is why I suggested a complete moratorium of taxes, duties and levies. Because this will equate to more businesses, more jobs, including businesses having to compete for good candidates. I think this will ultimately lead to better salaries, better benefits and working environments.
At present, because business activity is so retarded by regulation and law it can lead to exploitation, especially when you consider the unemployment rate. There are more candidates than jobs, so there will always be someone equal to the task but willing to accept less remuneration for the task.
