A new casino is trying a new idea: “term limits” for workers. Every four to six years, the workers will have to reapply for their job. The idea seems to be something other employers are now considering. It is seen as a way to make sure employers get the “most” out of their workers.

Now, Steve Forbes seems to suggest this is one of the good things which comes out of right to work laws. Employers now have the option to fire much easier with little to no responsibility to the workers. Indeed, what is not brought up here is the ramification of this: employers will be free to tell employees they will not be rehired unless they take a cut in their wages. Don’t think that won’t happen: if you are reapplying for a job it suggests other applicants will be considered alongside you. Indeed, it might be required. So if you want to keep your job (and health benefits) you must accept lower wages.
Hopefully this idea will not take off. I fear it will. If it does, we will be one step closer to the servile state.
