We found that when people put this issue on the table, it turns out that men acknowledge the issue, and employers and employees can work out solutions just as working mothers do.
James Levine
There once was a time when employers could be reasonably certain that college graduates had a basic sense of the world and, as a minimum, could write a coherent business letter. That is simply no longer the case, as some academic leaders appear ready to admit.
Charlie Sykes
Colleges and universities, for all the benefits they bring, accomplish far less for their students than they should. Many students graduate without being able to write well enough to satisfy their employers… reason clearly or perform competently in analyzing complex, non-technical problems.
Derek Bok
All successful employers are stalking men who will do the unusual, men who think, men who attract attention by performing more than is expected of them.
Charles M. Schwab
The employers cannot carry on industry nor accumulate profits if they have not got the good will of the workers or their acquiescence in carrying on such industry.
James Larkin
All my life, I’ve had a strong belief that I want to judge myself and others on their contribution, not their sex. I don’t think much of it when employers want applause for hiring women or minorities. Whether for the Supreme Court or McDonald’s, if you hire the best person, you’ll have a diverse workplace.
Martha MacCallum
One of the first bills I introduced in Congress was the Be Open Act, legislation to help ease an unnecessary, duplicative and punitive burden placed on employees and employers under the Affordable Care Act.

Capital available for individuals to start and expand businesses would increase with regulatory and strategic tax reforms, like reducing marginal rates, repealing the alternative minimum tax, and making the U.S. the most welcoming place for employers to relocate and create jobs.
Elaine Chao
As a small-business owner who kept costs low and health care premiums flat for 10 years in my company, I know firsthand that transparency is the trick to reducing the skyrocketing health care costs that are burdening patients, employers, and our state, local, and federal governments.
Mike Braun
Our approach in Louisiana has been to build meaningful partnerships that attract the leading employers of the future in a way that grows our economy and provides our people with outstanding career opportunities.
John Bel Edwards
The employers who do best are employers who reject these false choices. It’s not a zero-sum world where you either take care of your workers or you take care of your shareholders. You can do good and do well, too.
Tom Perez
Some refugees will find it relatively easy to find jobs. A university-educated Syrian civil engineer arriving in Munich will need to learn some German, but once this is done, he or she is unlikely to have to wait too long before employers come knocking.
Jose Angel Gurria
Laboring men can perform for themselves the office of becoming their own employers.
Leland Stanford
Given the rapid rate of change, the old paradigm of one-off education followed by a career will no longer work: life-long learning is a must, and it is up to governments and employers to invest in training and for employees to commit to constantly update their skill set.
Alain Dehaze
We should abolish ‘work.’ By that I mean abolishing the distinction between work and leisure, one of the greatest mistakes of the last century, one that enables employers to keep workers in lousy jobs by granting them some leisure time.
Theodore Zeldin
Stimulus spending, permanent bailouts, government takeovers, and federal mandates have all failed our nation. America’s employers are afraid to invest in an economy racked with uncertainty over what Washington’s next set of rules, regulations, mandates, and tax hikes will look like.
Geoff Davis
One of the most pervasive and damaging trends we are seeing in the 21st-century workplace is the deliberate misclassification of workers by employers looking to shift responsibility and cut costs.
Tom Perez
Employers don’t want to hire single moms with kids, because if the kid’s sick then they can’t work, and it goes on and on and on. It’s really incredibly difficult to find a job in that situation.
Stephanie Land
It’s widely recognized that employers and employees need more assistance addressing problems with rising health care costs. Attempts to address the problem are going to require a federal response, not a patchwork of state and local mandates.
Eugene Scalia
Fortunately, our digital age has created some wonderful tools for finding employers and showing your strengths. But when it comes to discovering or keeping a job, nothing beats good old-fashioned face time and up-to-date skills.
Chris Gardner

Madeleine M. Kunin
Free educational materials will, at minimum, prepare more people for college and allow them to be more successful once they get there. Most students want credentials that employers respect, and free educational materials alone will not do this.
Sal Khan
I see us continuing to expand our contracts just as we’ve done with Netflix and with Telemundo. We are not just bound to the traditional employers that we’ve had in the past.
Gabrielle Carteris
Free migration within Europe means that countries that have done a better job at reducing unemployment will predictably end up with more than their fair share of refugees. Workers in these countries bear the cost in depressed wages and higher unemployment, while employers benefit from cheaper labor.
Joseph Stiglitz
I find it a very encouraging sign for a society if employers are bringing online education to their companies, helping employees gain more knowledge.

Affirmative action makes employers think, ‘Black woman nuclear physicist? Hah! Probably let her into Harvard ’cause they were looking for a twofer. Bet she got C’s in high school practical math. Give her a job in personnel.’
P. J. O’Rourke

Tom Perez
I’ve always shied away from online data storage. I don’t even use my employers’ network drives for anything sensitive. I want to control access myself.
Barton Gellman
While some people simply want to villainize the private sector, the fact is that the private sector drives jobs growth; we need to channel the energy and innovation of employers to generate opportunities for the entire labor market.
John Hickenlooper
Most of us believe that women can do what men do. The c

Most of us believe that women can do what men do. The challenge is to convince employers, legislators, mothers, that men can do what women do.
Karen DeCrow
Employers have decided that having the breadth of knowledge that’s associated with a four-year degree is often something they want to see in the people they give that job to.
Bill Gates
Employers, like most people, tend to trust their intuitions. But when employers decide whom to hire, they trust those intuitions far more than they should.
Cass Sunstein
It’s my theory that one of the big reasons clinics have shut down – and will continue to shut down – is that former abortion workers have spoken out about their experiences in public and worked to testify against their former employers.
Abby Johnson
To be effective in tackling poverty wages, a living wage has to be mandatory and basic trade union rights should be restored so workers can protect themselves from exploitative employers.
John McDonnell
The club is always bigger than the individual, and employers can make a player’s life miserable if they want.
Robbie Savage
In the universities, we teach you what we decide you need to know. And the employers find out when they hire people that students didn’t learn what we needed them to learn. Online learning offerings, like the University of Phoenix, have relationships with employers and teach what you need to know.
Clayton M. Christensen
Charles Koch and David Koch, co-owners of Koch Industries, are U.S. citizens, taxpayers, entrepreneurs and employers.

Veterans have the skills employers want – discipline, motivation, leadership, and the ability to work on a team. They have made the U.S. military the most effective and respected in the world.
Bobby Kotick
Conceived as a short-term remedy to the occasional ailment of acute labour shortages in key industries, the indentured-labour service had to be dismantled by the Conservatives owing to its inevitably scandalous abuse by disreputable employers. By 2012, there were 338,000 temporary foreign workers in Canada.
Terry Glavin
Most employers see breaks in employment as a blemish on a resume. In the case of military spouses, however, it’s due to their frequent moves.
Brianna Keilar
Requiring one-sixth of our workforce to have a license in order to get a job is excessive and it robs our citizens of the chance to pursue their dreams while leaving our employers without the qualified employees they need to be able to grow.
Chris Sununu
In the last 5 years, American employers have lost over $150 billion of productivity to depression alone. That is more than the GDP of 28 different States during the same period.
Patrick J. Kennedy
Employers’ national income is a particular disincentive to employ because it is an expense without benefit.
Jacob Rees-Mogg
Social media is the future, with employers recognizing they need to start hiring people with the right skills.
Ryan Holmes
Some of the cases which have come to light of employers being disciplined or sacked for simply trying to talk about their faith in the workplace I find quite extraordinary. The sanitisation will lead to people of faith excluding themselves from the public space and being excluded.
Dominic Grieve
Young people who were relaxed about posting every detail of their life on Facebook become a lot less relaxed when they realise just how transparent their life has become to future employers.
Geoff Mulgan
I’d be 100 percent supportive of a minimum wage – kind of industry specific, maybe regionally specific – for guest workers, so that we’re not creating incentives for employers to bring in immigrants to lower the price of labor.
Ron Johnson
The majority of Americans receive health insurance coverage through their employers, but with rising health care costs, many small businesses can no longer afford to provide coverage for their employees.
Jim Ryun
Words and ideas work in the short run to get you through school and to impress educators and employers. But they do not work in the long run or in the deep run. We soon find ourselves separate and without wonder.
Richard Rohr
The UK’s most forward-thinking employers already know they need to attract, retain and promote the best talent – both male and female.

Elaine Chao
You can force students to learn, to a certain extent, but students aren’t happy and employers aren’t happy.
Sugata Mitra
People don’t actually want to think about their own health and don’t take action until they are sick. Yet employers are very motivated to get their employees healthy, since they bear most of the burden of their health care costs.
Clayton M. Christensen
Soaring prescription drug costs have placed a tremendous strain on family budgets. They have also imposed a heavy burden on employers – both public and private – who are struggling to provide affordable health insurance coverage to their workers.
Susan Collins
Sanctions and workfare make it easier for employers to impose insecure practices on desperate people.
Guy Standing
I’m not naive to the fact that my gender has at times helped me. Employers are now thinking, ‘Let’s get perspectives that are different than the ones we have.’
Doris Burke
The fact that people are dropping out of the labour force says one of two things: either employers have no use for them, or they have no use for the jobs that are being offered at the wages they can command.
David Autor
When you’re a kid, you might be picked on for your differences. When you’re an adult, employers, colleges, friends – people look for differences when you’re adult, and that’s what makes you shine and stand out.
Crystal Bowersox

Gabrielle Carteris
Employees have been worrying about the rising tide of automation for 200 years now, and for 200 years employers have been assuring them that new jobs will naturally materialize to take their place.
Rutger Bregman
Blogging is a great way to show your talents and intere

Blogging is a great way to show your talents and interests to prospective employers, while adding an edge to your resume. If you blog consistently it shows your dedication, passions and creativity – all of which are key attributes employers look for in job candidates.
Lauren Conrad
While labour market reports scream with dramatic youth unemployment data, hundreds of employers cry out for employees with the right skills sets. As recruiters, we suffer this shortage every day.
Alain Dehaze
Our employers today face numerous challenges and stiff competition from businesses all over the world.
Jim Gerlach
Stop pretending there’s anything wrong with businesspeople hiring diligent laborers who will work for less. Let employers sponsor any worker and argue for why that worker should be given citizenship. Such a vetting mechanism would naturally promote the best and hardest-working.
Jose Ferreira
Putting roadblocks in the way of legitimate strike action only increases the likelihood of more wildcat strikes, which in turn will make it that much harder for employers to address legitimate grievances, given that they’ll lose the ability to negotiate with recognised union leaders.
Emily Thornberry
I’ve spoken with a few employers who have moved away from what has to be some of the least attractive language you could use about health risk to start talking about wellbeing.
Tom Rath
Employers and business leaders need people who can think for themselves – who can take initiative and be the solution to problems.

Hank Johnson
When you think about the Americans with Disabilities Act and what it takes for employers sometimes to accommodate a person with disabilities, when we talk about reasonable accommodations – it’s doable, but the payoff isn’t always obvious right away.
Maggie Hassan
Every person has got the right to speak in public so long as it is their own point of view and it does not reflect badly on their employers, the game or other personalities in the game.
Gordon Taylor
The New Labour doctrine that skills training was the responsibility of employers was flawed. The idea that employers should take on a bigger role ignores the reality that employers have no incentive to train staff to leave. We can hardly expect Tesco to train checkout staff to become dental nurses.
David Lammy
We have to get very militant with some of these employers to say there’s no shortcuts, our people have a right to a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s pay, and we’ve got to get that done. And that’s going to happen.
James P. Hoffa
We’re going to be very strong with employers in all of our aspects, because I think there’s been too much of this idea let’s try and get along here, and we’ve eroded some of our standards.
James P. Hoffa
Responsible employers who pursue bold growth agendas must embrace intelligent technologies.
Pierre Nanterme
I know very well what it is to be out of work and to be cheated by employers and I know what it is to be an employer.
David Mamet
Now in a lot of rural towns in Kentucky, the school system is the heartbeat of the community, not to mention one of the major employers.
Krystal Ball
Art can help a town by attracting a certain Bohemian population that adds life to the bars, character to the streets and a buzz to the name. Employers may then follow. But art can’t do much if every town does it. There aren’t enough Bohemians.
Evan Davis
What we’ve been hearing over and over again is that the reason Republicans are opposed to the surtax is because of the concern of its impact on job creation. Well, if you carve out employers, you take away that argument.
Susan Collins
By mandating equal pay, the government erases the competitive advantage of those people who are willing to take less pay. In addition, employers are less willing to hire employees who they believe could subject them to increased liability.
When we talk about the minimum wage, we have to ask ourselves what it is that we owe both our workers and employers. I think clearly we owe them fairness.
Dalton McGuinty
Most employers just aren’t willing to look beyond the dumbest or worst thing someone has done.
Greg Boyle
The federal government has gone too far on many nonessential regulations that are harming small businesses. Employers are rightly concerned about the costs of these regulations – so they stop hiring, stop spending, and start saving for a bill from the federal government.
Sam Graves
Our young people are some of the best and most talented in the world – they are driven, entrepreneurial, and innovative – and with the help of people who have already made it in the world of work, they can go on to be the bosses and employers of the future.
Esther McVey
But my view is that you need a system at the border. You need some fencing but you need technology. You need boots on the ground. And then you need to have interior enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws inside the country. And that means dealing with the employers who still consistently hire illegal labor.
Janet Napolitano
Where laws recognize rights to collective bargaining, the truth is that employee rights to negotiate with employers are denied in many countries.
Sharan Burrow
I’ve urged employers to address workers’ pain.
Eugene Scalia
Clearly, apprenticeships are a win-win: They provide workers with sturdy rungs on that ladder of opportunity and employers with the skilled workers they need to grow their businesses. And yet in America, they’ve traditionally been an undervalued and underutilized tool in our nation’s workforce development arsenal.
Tom Perez
We want to make sure that workers know their rights and that employers know their obligations. That is the best way to protect workers.
Elaine Chao
I’m for anything that lets people come here to work legally. There are more protections for workers who are here legally than for those who are not. It’s also safer for the workers and employers have a more consistent pool of workers.
Larry Craig
If you don't have collective agreements between unions

If you don’t have collective agreements between unions and employers, governments have to legislate more.
Jacques Delors
Veterans are some of the best workers, and with the right training and support they can help meet the growing demand for jobs in a broad range of technical fields that many employers are struggling to fill.
Conor Lamb
Employers who violate rules of fairness are punished by reduced productivity, and merchants who follow unfair pricing policies can expect to lose sales.
Daniel Kahneman
The government’s Small Business Administration reports that small businesses represent 99% of all employers in the U.S. and are responsible for generating well over half of new jobs created.
Ellen Tauscher
We should say to private employers, if you knowingly hire illegal immigrants, there’s going to be a consequence. I underline the word ‘knowingly.’ And you make available a system like E-Verify.
Tim Pawlenty
I do not demand equal pay for any women save those who do equal work in value. Scorn to be coddled by your employers; make them understand that you are in their service as workers, not as women.
Susan B. Anthony
Employers should not be able to impose their religious beliefs on female employees, ignoring their individual health decisions and denying their right to reproductive care. Bosses belong in the boardroom, not in the bedroom.
Dina Titus
We as the governments, workers, employers and civil society must declare a war on child labour. This war cannot be won without strong, committed, coherent, and well-resourced worldwide movement. Equally needed is a genuine and active coordination between intergovernmental agencies at the highest level.
Kailash Satyarthi
We need to get back and make the agencies who are putting more burdens on businesses and employers and hardworking taxpayers and question whether or not there’s a true benefit, and if there isn’t, we must take steps to repeal them.
Thom Tillis
There are people walking around the streets of Kansas City who are unemployed, while one of our largest employers is not only sending jobs aboard, but then turning around and making a statement about preserving jobs.
Emanuel Cleaver
It is U.S. workers who lose out when employers cannot get the high-tech graduates they need to compete with foreign companies in the 21st century economy.
Kit Bond
The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.
Woodrow Wilson
For some people, work is the only safe haven from abuse. So all employers in businesses big and small, whether in the public or private sector, should be encouraged to create safe spaces at work where staff suffering domestic abuse can talk to an appropriately qualified person who can provide advice and offer support.
Keir Starmer
Domestic employees are at the whim of their employers.
Ai-jen Poo
Here’s the truth. The proposed top rate of income tax is not 50 per cent. It is 50 per cent plus 1.5 per cent national insurance paid by employees plus 13.3 per cent paid by employers. That’s not 50 per cent. Two years from now, Britain will have the highest tax rate on earned income of any developed country.
Andrew Lloyd Webber
Apprenticeships, when they are delivered well, have the potential to offer massive benefits to our employers and our economy as a whole by upskilling our workforce, and offer a vital alternative to those who feel that a more academic route is not the right one for them.
Layla Moran
Where workers are not free to change employers or leave the country without the permission of their employer, workers are, de facto, in forced labour.
Sharan Burrow
If you’ve found some way to educate yourself about engineering, stocks, or whatever it is, good employers will have some type of exam or interview and see a sample of your work.
Bill Gates
First and foremost, we have to ensure that we have to get our own kids ready for work so that employers want to take them on.
Esther McVey
I was having a hard time getting interest from future employers because of my physics background. It seemed all anyone wanted was engineers.
Shannon Walker
When times are bad, the gloves come off and employers are less nice. People become disposable.
Scott Adams
I’ve urged employers to address ergonomics and adopt ergonomics measures.
Eugene Scalia
It has no enforceable standards to stop a union from conspiring with employers to keep another stronger union out or from negotiating contracts with lower pay and standards that members of another union have spent a lifetime establishing.
Andy Stern
On balance, I am a supporter of the minimum wage going up. We’ve got to be very careful what we wish for because some employers – and there could be a lot of them – will be scared away from hiring new people or creating incremental hours for part-time people as a result of that wage going up.
Howard Schultz
Many unions have contracts with employers that are based on a multiple of the prevailing minimum wage. If the minimum wage goes up, union salaries go up by a similar percentage.
Neal Boortz
Employers tend to forget that the people who are working for them are also suffering. They also have problems. They also are facing issues.
Yalitza Aparicio
The costermongers’ boys will, I am informed, cheat their employers, but they do not steal from them.
Henry Mayhew
