  1. And here’s the real sweetener about many of those vocational artisan jobs… Those jobs involve the worker doing skilled work directly for the customer. That direct contact opens the possibility of self-employment. Those are not factory line jobs in monopoly industries where the choice is working at the wage set by the only employer or not working in that industry at all. The real employer is not the “boss”, the real employer, who the worker has direct access to, is the customer.

  2. Great presentation, thank you!
