Sarah Beeny - Good - Jobs

Jeff Bezos - Customers - Commitment

The change we need is fixing this broken economy from the bottom up.. not tax breaks for the wealthy and huge corporations that ship U.S. jobs overseas. We need to focus on defeating al Qaeda and the Taliban and restoring America's standing in the world.. not an unending commitment in Iraq.
Joe Biden - War - Iraq - Change - Economy - Taxes - Wealth - Companies - America - Jobs - World - Commitment

There is a middle class in America for only one reason: organized labor. If not for organized labor, where would you find a job where you had some sense that you had a shot of leaving behind something better than you inherited?.
Joe Biden - Jobs - America - Middle Class - Society - Classes

Eliminating the tax breaks is not going to keep jobs here in America. We've got to make it more attractive to have jobs here in America and for corporations to be here. You've got to take the burden off the corporations with a health care system that's universal, so we're not at a competitive disadvantage. You've got to have a better education system to provide for the highest-tech jobs that we educate our folks for, so we're not importing 400,000 computer engineers to work in Silicon Valley. And you've got to deal with the innovation and infrastructure needs in this country.. tunnels, bridges, etc... which we haven't done to make us more competitive.
Joe Biden - Economy - Taxes - America - Jobs - Companies - Health - Education - Silicon Valley - Innovation

I've got the greatest job in the world. There's no other job in government where cause and effect is so tightly coupled where you can make a difference every day in so many different ways and in so many different people's lives. It's a great challenge.
Michael Bloomberg - Optimistic - Politicians - Change - Job - Challenges

Monday morning. Time to pay for your two days of debauchery, you hungover drones.

Monty Burns - Work

My job is a job to make decisions. I'm a decision.. if the job description were, what do you do.. it's decision maker.
George Bushism - Jobs - Decisions - Stupid - Leadership - President

Keeping taxes low and restraining spending leads to a vibrant economy; it leads to new jobs; it leads to better opportunities; and it leads to a shrinking deficit.
George Bush -
Taxes - Economy - Jobs - Opportunity

You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your f**kin' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street.
George Carlin - Big Business - Stupid - Society - Control - Greed - Dumb - Employee - Jobs - Retirement - Wage - Wall Street

People would ask me how I could stand the long campaigning, how I could stand being charged with the responsibilities of a great nation, one of the most powerful and difficult jobs in the world. It wasn't any more difficult than picking cotton all day or shaking peanuts.
Jimmy Carter - Power

You've got a job to do, and because you've got a job to do, you've got to focus on that, so you don't have time for personal considerations.
Dick Cheney - Job
- Focus - Responsibility

You really do think about it institutionally; this is your job, and to some extent you benefit from having a job to do at a moment like this. You have things that you have to make happen. And you don't have time for the emotional reaction that might otherwise occur if somebody was just sitting there watching these events unfold and had no responsibilities.
Dick Cheney - Job - Focus - Responsibility - Politicians

Chin-Ning Chu - Ambition - Success - Job

For many people a job is more than an income – it's an important part of who we are. So a career transition of any sort is one of the most unsettling experiences you can face in your life.
Paul Clitheroe - Jobs - Change - Life


I was always acting primarily with shareholder interests in mind. It's also true I've always had a fairly moralistic attitude to business, and would not do anything that I considered improper. As a consequence, I have occasionally pursued issues during my career that other people might have avoided.
Chris Corrigan - Management - Stocks - Business
- Challenges - Job

I'd always had a childhood ambition to go into the investment capital business, and spent twenty-odd years in it. But the thought of spending the second half of my career in the same business was boring, so I looked around for other opportunities.
Chris Corrigan - Business - Investing - Ambition
- Opportunity - Job

You know in politics you are dealing in the realm of choices. You don't always have clear-cut decision between a thoroughly principled position and a thoroughly unprincipled one. You're making snap decisions with paucity of information, generally trying to do the best that you can, but you will make errors, and sometimes it's a decision between a bad and a worse alternative. It has to be done, because we need to order our society, and of politics it can literally be said: Bad job, but someone's got to do it.
Peter Costello -
Decisions - Social - Politics - Jobs

I've lost tremendous amounts of money in various markets and I think that that's something that makes you better at my job, not worse.
Jim Cramer - Money - Stock Market - Jobs - Losing


If the firms that employ an increasing majority of the population are driven solely to satisfy the owner's greed at the expense of working conditions, of the stability of the community, and of the health of the environment, chances are that the quality of our lives will be worse than it is now.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Environment
- Business Ethics - Greed - Profits - Companies - Jobs

You look for stars. You look for the makeup of artists who can have long lasting careers and who could be headliners.
Clive Davis - Commitment - Jobs - Long Term Investing

You will encounter many distractions and many temptations to put your goal aside: The security of a job, a wife who wants kids, whatever. But if you hang in there, always following your vision, I have no doubt you will succeed.
Larry Flynt - Belief - Goals - Success

I just needed a job. Before being hired as an usher at the CBS Theater, I didn't even know there was a show business.
David Geffen - Jobs - Show Business

The entrepreneur builds an enterprise; the technician builds a job.
Michael Gerber - Entrepreneurs - Jobs

As our economy faces up to potential labour shortages due to our ageing population and as it moves to a new level of sophistication to compete with the rest of the world, we’re going to need every Australian on board pulling their weight, rejoining the workforce, gaining new skills.
Writing off individuals and communities suffering from poverty just creates a dead weight for our economy to drag along.
Julia Gillard - Jobs - Australia - Economy - Education - Skills - Poverty


I could have closed down bits of British Home Stores to make more money but it’s not my style. I want to make my money as a retailer, not by putting people out of work.
Philip Green - Commitment - Jobs - Work - Money - Business

Now we've got around seven thousand people working, and that to me is fantastically satisfying.. more than dollars and cents, because I just believe that the greatest thing you can give someone is a job.

Lee Iacocca - Business - Jobs - Learning - Passions

What is it that you like doing? If you don’t like it, get out of it, because you’ll be lousy at it. You don’t have to stay with a job for the rest of your life, because if you don’t like it you’ll never be successful in it.
Lee Iacocca - Jobs - Life - Successful - Decisions - Passions

If you treat staff as your equal, they'll roll their sleeves up to get the job done.
John Ilhan - Leadership - Job - Partnership

John Ilhan - Challenges - Job - Customers
- Marketing

It's a different kind of economic recovery. The kind where bankers steal trillions and you don't have a job.
Alex Jones - Economy - Recovery - Bankers - Theft - Jobs

What a bunch of garbage, liberal, Democratic, conservative, Republican, it's all there to control you, two sides of the same coin! Two management teams, bidding for control of the CEO job of Slavery Incorporated!
Alex Jones - Jobs - Politics - Democratic - Republican - CEO - Control - Conservative - Liberal

Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods are really part of a very big advertising program, and the fact that they make so much money is because the markets have dictated that they get that money, and the fact that they endorse our products allows us to sell more products and create more jobs.
Philip Knight - Money - Advertising - Branding - Jobs

My job is to listen to ideas, maybe cook up a few of my own, and make decisions based on what's good for the shareholders and for the company.

David Koch - Business - Economy - Jobs - President

Republican leaders have made clear they have no plans to use the power of government to stimulate the economy, invest in job creation and spur job growth. The Fed’s plan is to give banks more money to finance the private sector job creation. But banks have ample cash now; they aren’t lending, and the private sector is not creating the jobs. That is why we have 15 million people unemployed.
Dennis Kucinich - Republican - Government - Economic - Jobs - Banks - Unemployment - Money - Federal Reserve

When you consider that a steelworker who’s making $40,000 a year has virtually the same tax burden as someone who’s making $400,000 a year, you see that there are inequities. This administration has used the tax code to accelerate wealth to the top. Most of the tax breaks have gone to people in the top bracket.
Dennis Kucinich - Republican - Jobs - Workers - Tax - Rich - Working Class - Unfair

Some of us will do our jobs well and some will not, but we will be judged by only one thing. the result.

My first six years in the business were hopeless. There are a lot of times when you sit and you say "Why am I doing this? I'll never make it. It's just not going to happen. I should go out and get a real job, and try to survive."
George Lucas - Business - Commitment - Challenges - Jobs

I'm lucky. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. I never really had a job. I was a football player, then a football coach, then a football broadcaster. It's been my life. Pro football has been my life since 1967. I've enjoyed every part of it. Never once did it ever feel like work.
John Madden - Lucky - Jobs
- Life - Work - Enjoyment

They talk about how hard coaches work. They work 18, 20 hours a day. They sleep on a couch. They don't come home. You know, that's not the hard job. The hard job is a coach's wife, believe me. The job of the coach's wife, she has to be mother, father, driver, doctor, nurse, coach, everything, because the coach is out there working.
John Madden - Jobs - Hard Work
- Family

As I look back now on my coaching career, I think of my family, I think of the days that we spent together. I say this to coaches everywhere: If you ever have a chance to take your kids with you, take them. Don't miss that opportunity. Because when it's all over and done with, when you look back, those are going to be your fondest memories.
John Madden - Jobs - Family

John McCain - Environmental

Angela Merkel - Money - Earnings - Politicians - Jobs

Small and mid-sized companies in this country historically have been responsible for creating the overwhelming majority of new jobs in the private sector. One of the most-common misconceptions about our private enterprise system is that large companies, such as the Fortune 500, are integral to the process of job creation in this country. The truth is quite the opposite.
Michael Milken - Companies -
America - Jobs - Truth

It is extremely unlikely that anyone coming out of school with a technical degree will go into one area and stay there. Today's students have to look forward to the excitement of probably having three or four careers.
Gordon Moore - Learning - Change - Jobs - Technology

I feel that one of the best things a person can do for another is to create a job. So you do OK commercially, and then you try to make a difference of some sort.
Craig Newmark - Best - Jobs - Business


I need to make an okay living. The people who work for us need to. But after you make a comfortable living, how much more do you need? It's like I make a joke about nerd values, because I'm very much in the rich nerd tradition. And you know, we say, like, hey, people pay us for this stuff, like programming. You know, what else do we need?
Craig Newmark - Technology - Money - Earnings - Rich - Jobs


The truth is women in the workplace don’t have to fight nearly as hard for opportunities, or to dispel stereotypes, as they did before.
Suze Orman - Woman - Opportunity - Jobs


If the boss is a jerk, get over it. First of all, don’t you think there’s a good chance that your boss’s boss knows what’s going on? If so, just keep your head down and do the work. Usually, if you put in maximum effort and produce excellent results, someone in the company is going to take notice. Either you will get promoted or your jerky boss will get the heave-ho. It happens all the time.
Suze Orman - Jobs - Management - Hard Work
- Companies

Try handling problems in the office as dispassionately as you can and I guarantee you will have a better time of it; not least because when you bring emotion into the conversation, you furnish your colleagues with an easy “out” for dismissing you. If you are able to strip out the emotion, however, people have to deal with you based on the facts.
Suze Orman - Jobs - Problems - Emotional
- Solutions

You got to like your work. You have got to like what you are doing, you have got to be doing something worthwhile so you can like it.. because it is worthwhile, that it makes a difference, don't you see?
Colonel Sanders - Work - Jobs - Enjoyment

We want passion for our business.. workers who can interpret and execute our mission, who want to build a career, not just take a temporary job.
Howard Schultz - Employee - Passion - Business - Career - Jobs

Hiring people is an art, not a science, and resumes can't tell you whether someone will fit into a company's culture. When you realize you've made a mistake, you need to cut your losses and move on.
Howard Schultz - Employee - Management - Jobs - Decisions - Art - Companies - Culture - Mistakes

If you do the right job then money will come to you. Because people who need you will request, will ask for you, will attract you, and will be willing to pay you for your services.
Jose Silva - Jobs - Money

I'm doing everything I can to sabotage my career. It's a little thing called "fear of success".
Jon Stewart - Career - Fear - Success

If we actually love what we're doing and we go and do what we love, and every day we get up because we're really happy to get up and go and do what we do, you can't actually do that without expression, and art forms part of that mix of expression that makes the whole package of life so enjoyable to be in
Kerry Stokes - Love - Jobs - Happiness
- Art Collecting - Enjoyment

Leaders are made, not born. You learn to become a leader by doing what other excellent leaders have done before you. You become proficient in your job or skill, and then you become proficient at understanding the motivations and behaviors of other people.
Brian Tracy - Learning - Leadership - Skill - Jobs - Motivational

Your income is a direct reward for the quality and quantity of the services you render to your world. Whatever field you are in, if you want to double your income, you simply have to double the quality and quantity of what you do for that income. Or you have to change activities and occupations so that what you are doing is worth twice as much.

Brian Tracy - Goals - Work - Wages - Jobs - Change

Ted Turner - Entrepreneurs

My main job was developing talent. I was a gardener providing water and other nourishment to our top 750 people. Of course, I had to pull out some weeds, too.
Jack Welch - Management

We also need to reduce corporate tax rates. This applies to small, medium and large businesses. At 35 percent, we have the second highest corporate rates in the world. It restricts the growth of small enterprises that need to plow capital back into their businesses and forces companies and jobs to move overseas.
Meg Whitman - Small Business -

If we don’t rededicate ourselves to education with the same attitude Americans have applied to going to the moon and fighting wars, the results will be profound. We will gradually lose our successful workforce.

Oprah Winfrey - Work - Money - Success

If my son wants to be a pimp when he grows up, that's fine with me. I hope he's a good one and enjoys it and doesn't get caught. I'll support him in this. But if he wants to be a network administrator, he's out of the house and not part of my family.
