“Nowadays, the number of young people practicing the father’s profession is declining.”

Bendevi Palandoken, president of the Confederation of Turkish Businessmen and Artisans (TESK), said: “The foundation of trade and economy is traders and artisans. However, at present, the number of young people who choose to become businessmen and artisans and their tendency to practice their father’s profession is decreasing. The deep-rooted understanding of trade is coming to an end 50, 60, 100 years ago, “he said.

TESK Chairman Bendevi Palandoken stressed in a statement that children of business and artisan fathers do not continue their careers. The children of businessmen and artisans are not in favor of their father’s profession and many professions are beginning to disappear, “said Palandoken.” The basis of trade and economy is traders and artisans. However, at present, the number of young people who choose to be businessmen and artisans and their tendency to practice their father’s profession is decreasing. The deep-rooted notion of 50, 60, 100 years of trade is coming to an end. Because of unfair competition in business form and profit situation, unfortunately, they do not practice their father’s profession, since there is no guarantee that their father’s profession will make a living for their children. This is so terrible that in almost 2.5 million workplaces, and in all of them, when the children of artisans or commercial people finish their schooling, they will work with their fathers without waiting for a job from the state, contribute to employment and look to expand their business. Today, instead of learning a craft from a family and pursuing a career, the idea of ​​’entering a government office’ is gone. ”

Entrepreneurs are the building blocks of the economy and there are more than 100 occupations that are on the verge of extinction today, ”said Palandoken. Unfortunately, the number of people continuing their father’s profession has dropped from 36 percent to 11 percent. The term “continuing the father’s profession” is almost completely forgotten. The barber boy says I don’t do my father’s job anymore because my father is very tired. In trades like tinsmith, copper artisan, furniture maker, haberdashery, crystal, photography, in private jobs like jewelry making and in sensitive and capital jobs, people no longer like father’s profession. “I can only work with someone else,” he said. Looking at the number of shops open and closed in the life of a trader, a workplace opens, but it can last for a maximum of 2-3 years. A cement shop opens and you see it closing after 6 months. Therefore, it is difficult for qualified workers to learn the craft described by the master. Even in the true employment-oriented industries, where a furniture repairman and a furnishings no longer exist, there are no apprentices in the industries. Because our children, who are no longer able to work under the pressure of their father’s profession, are now clerks in front of others, or engaged in other work. Or looking for a job in a government office while continuing his education. You know, since there are limited jobs, many of them join the army of the unemployed, as we have seen. However, those who truly practice and develop their father’s profession can sustain that business for 80 years. Today, many professors are unable to find an apprentice to train them. As the father’s career continued, it dropped from 11 percent in the industrial sector to 13 percent in the commercial sector. However, leaving the father’s job increases unemployment. Today, children who do not see a future in their father’s profession, unfortunately, do not return to these professions.

Vocational high school education models should be more centralized than the Akhibad tradition, Palandoken said. “When we move away from the manufacturing sector, the economy also falters. For example, the number of farmers decreases from 1 million to 493 thousand per year. When his father cannot get what he wants from production, he either goes to the big city or studies and tries to become a government employee. Reduces the demand for business. Things that negatively affect business should be eliminated. Being a businessman should be made more attractive to increase trends. In addition, vocational high school should give more space to the tradition of Akhidharma. Educational models are organized to ensure continuity of father’s profession. Should be developed.
