39 CAREER Questions? The Chazin Group

40 CAREER The Chazin Group Perspective Taxes have risen; our ability to pay has fallen; government of all kinds is faced by serious curtailment of income; the savings of many years in thousands of families are gone. More important, a host of unemployed citizens face the grim problem of existence, and an equally great number toil with little return. Only a foolish optimist can deny the dark realities of the moment. Happiness lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort. The joy and moral stimulation of work no longer must be forgotten in the mad chase of…profits. These dark days will be worth all they cost us if they teach us that our true destiny is not to be ministered unto but to minister to Ourselves and to our fellow men. Our greatest primary task is to put people to work. This is no unsolvable problem if we face it wisely and courageously.
