TESK President Palandoken: “Today, the number of young people who tend to practice their father’s profession is declining.”

Bendevi Palandoken, president of the Turkish Confederation of Businessmen and Artisans (TESK), said, “Trade and the economy are based on business and craftsmen. The original understanding is coming to an end, “he said.

TESK Chairman Bendevi Palandoken stressed in a statement that children of business and artisan fathers do not continue their careers. Noting that the children of businessmen and artisans are not in favor of their father’s profession and many professions are beginning to disappear, Palandoken said, “The basis of trade and economy is traders and artisans. The deep-rooted notion of trade is coming to an end 50,60,100 years ago. Because of unfair competition in form and profit in trade, unfortunately, they. When the children of business or business people finish their schooling, they will work with their father without waiting. Contribute to jobs, employment from the state and focus on expanding their business. Today, one learns a craft from family and thinks of ‘entering government office’ rather than continuing the profession, ”he said.

Mentioning that entrepreneurs are the backbone of the economy and that there are more than 100 occupations that are on the verge of extinction today, Palandoken said: “In the past, practicing father’s profession was considered sacred. Dropped to 11 percent. To continue father’s work. Expression almost completely forgotten. The son of a barber says, “I no longer work for my father because my father is very tired. In professions like tinsmith, coppersmith, furniture maker, haberdashery, crystal, photography, in private jobs like jewelry, and in sensitive and capitalized jobs, people no longer demand father’s profession. Ben says he can only work with someone else. When you look at the number of shops open and closed in a businessman’s life, the workplace opens, but can last a maximum of 2-3 years. A bagel store opens, but you close it after 6 months. , It is difficult for qualified workers to train and learn the craft described by the master. . It is not possible to find apprentices in the furniture repair industry, even in the true employment-oriented industry, where an upholstery is no longer available. 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 they may be pursuing their studies and looking for a job in a government office. 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, in many professions, fans cannot 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, are not inclined towards these professions, “he said.

Noting that vocational high school education models should be more centralized than the Akhibad tradition, Palandoken said, “When we move away from the productive sector, the economy begins to shake. When he sees that his father cannot get what he wants from production, he either moves to the big city, or studies and tries to become a government employee. Unfair competition in trade also reduces the demand of traders. Factors that negatively affect traders should be eliminated. Being a trader should be more attractive. “Tradition should be given more prominence in vocational high school. Educational models should be organized and developed in such a way as to ensure continuity of the father’s profession, “he said. – Ankara
