Someone said :
I think I judge myself and fellow settled people as much or more as I judge travellers.
So hopefully that makes any travellers reading this feel better.
And I also feel a certain admiration for travellers.
I think there is a strong mistrust between settled people and travellers. Maybe that's a better word than judgment.
One problem as I see it is that there very few travellers working or employed in conventional jobs. I've met one traveller working in McDonald's but he's the only one that I know of who is employed in a job. The strong mistrust stops settled employers from employing travellers. Travellers thus have to make their financial way through life by other means. Sometimes that's drawing the dole, some have businesses. Horse trading, scrap collecting, money lending etc.
The mistrust and the lack of normal employment opportunities are the stem of a lot of the problems travellers face in my opinion.
Concentrating on job creation, do you see a major reson preventing people from a travellers' background, who have a legitimate business, to become employers of fellow travellers, all in the open market?
Sidenote: how many realize that most "settled" businessesbusinesses consider that cash transactions are "tax free", and their accountants know all the tricks to avoid/evade taxes?
