Ben Stein’s Sucking on His Own Feet Again

Ben Stein’s an idiot:

The people who have been laid off and cannot find work are generally people with poor work habits and poor personalities. I say “generally” because there are exceptions. But in general, as I survey the ranks of those who are unemployed, I see people who have overbearing and unpleasant personalities and/or who do not know how to do a day’s work. They are people who create either little utility or negative utility on the job. Again, there are powerful exceptions and I know some, but when employers are looking to lay off, they lay off the least productive or the most negative. To assure that a worker is not one of them, he should learn how to work and how to get along — not always easy.

What an obtuse and offensive statement. Apparently I need to inform all the people I know who’ve been laid-off lately that they need to improve their work skills.

What a moron…

Have anything to add to the conversation?
