Should Employees Run The Shift System?
By fiifi DZANSI
Getting rid of unemployment or bringing it to the minimum is becoming farfetched. We are losing the fight.
Old businesses are not expanding enough to take in new employees, and new institutions are not living long enough to see the light of day.
Back in the day, most public schools in some cities ran the shift system to allow many kids to be in school.
This system ran for years until it became obsolete.
Ghana’s problem has always been the unavailability of enough structures to accommodate all the kids we have.
The problem is the same when it comes to employment.
What if employees run the shift system?
One group of workers from various sectors could work from morning to afternoon, and another group would take it up from there.
Two or more people filling the same position would foster creativity, productivity and help reduce unemployment.
