Sustainability Solutions to Share with Linchpins # 29

I’m sharing some “million dollar” creative sustainability ideas and you can have them for free.  Be a Linchpin and develop something: ship, ship, ship!

FAIR Trade:

Pure capitalism can take a perfectly good financial opportunity and abuse it to the point that all of the financial gain is held by the privileged few.  On its extremes, capitalism can foster a type of modern slavery.

You’ve already seen this: it takes three or four minimum wage jobs to make ends meet, so people begin bartering for ridiculous rates, day-labor, or resort to crime, prostitution, or drug dealing.

I’m not really sure what the fair value for an hour of imposing on someone’s party time would be…which is to say that I don’t think anybody “deserves” to get paid in exchange for showing up late, with a bad attitude.

Where’s the Linchpin opportunity?

There are countries where this has already run amuck, and there is where the greatest potential exists for a Linchpin to organize a socially responsible, financially viable, and sustainable enterprise!

Jared (Miller) Angaza started Keza, with these principles in mind.
