better prices per kilo? how did u know?
..based on experience, to be able to compete and get good profit in the philippine traditional market one should produce more. In terms of management, laborers here are not good as you are to understand things and follow specific instructions. Otherwise, they most likely become scientists and not laborers if they got the brains..
..i can sell 'locally" at less than the cost of going to the central wholesale market, buying and shipping, and i deliver to the door..
..and no, you really misunderstand your workers, some might want to become scientists, but most just want to live locally, earn a living and feed their families. If YOU wish them to be good, then teach them, stop treating them as brain-dead morons...
..You had an education, they didn't, but so ? being able to read and write is not a proof of intelligence or ability, just a proof of a certain amount of schooling, nothing more, nothing less..
..at the risk of "not being considered nice", and certainly not wishing to save your "face", stop being so bloody arrogant, a good officer thinks 2 levels down from his rank, so should you...
..i thank you, i really do, for confirming something i suspected, an attitude problem, which i am already doing my best to overcome by writing a book, on how to Market Garden in 'my" valley, lotsa pictures, simple words, and, oh yes, and, an obligatory on-going training course for all, including me, one half day per week spent in "class"...
..it'l work with some, the others, shrug, it's a hard world, i still gotta make a profit..
..the end result should be 'my' valley earns a living, and i'l be a happy bunny, i do find that under-nourished children just soooooo spoil the view, don't you ?
