Produttivita Nazzjonali

Labour Force Survey
Mill-Labour Force Survey li giet
ippublikata l-gimgha l-ohra johrog li n-numru ta` nies jahdmu f’Malta issa huwa
ta` 143,885. It-total ta` nies f’eta li jistghu jahdmu hi ta` 318,393 jigifieri
174,508 ta` eta` ta` aktar minn 15-il sena f’Malta ma jahdmux. Dan ifisser li
45.2% biss ta` dawk li kapaci jahdmu qeghdin fil-fatt jaghtu xoghol f’pajjizna.
Mit-total kollu ta` nies disponibbli 3.8% kienu jfittxu x-xoghol. Izda 51% huma
nies bla xoghol u inattivi. Il-fatti jigifieri juru li 45.2% ta` dawk il-fuq
minn 15-il sena qed jahdmu ghall-55% l-ohra. Dan barra it-tfal ta` taht il-15-il
sena!

 


Zbilanc
Wiehed hawn malajr jigbed l-ewwel konkluzjoni: dawk li
jahdmu, anke jekk huma l-aktar produttivi fid-dinja, ghandhom piz enormi fuq
daharhom. Jezisti zbilanc qawwi bejn min jahdem u min ma jahdimx f’pajjizna.
B’dak li jaqilghu dawk li jahdmu jridu jsostnu aktar nies mhux attivi milli
attivi. Malajr allura wiehed jibda jifhem ukoll x’uhud mill-problemi enormi li
ghandna f’pajjizna, kemm dawk ekonomici, kif ukoll dawk socjali. Kif jistghu 45%
tan-nies b’eta ta` aktar minn 15-il sena jaqilghu bizzejjed biex izommu l-livell
ta` l-ghixien taghhom stess dejjem tiela, u jhallsu wkoll bizzejjed taxxi u
kontribuzzjonijiet socjali biex jinzammu l-isptarijiet b’xejn, l-iskejjel u
is-servizzi governattivi kollha li jinghataw bla hlas, jithallsu l-pagi kollha
tal-haddiema tal-Gvern, jinghataw is-sussidji lill-bdiewa, lis-sajjieda,
lit-Tarzna, lil Freeport, llil-Korporazzjoni ghas-Servizzi ta` l-Ilma, tinzamm
l-Universita` kollha b’xejn, jinbnew progetti godda, u t-toroq jinzammu f’livell
tajjeb, ikun indukrat sewwa l-patrimonju nazzjonali, inzommu d-difiza tal-pajjiz
u jkunu kumbattuti l-kriminalita`, il-mard u l-abbuzi. Dan kollu meta fl-istess
waqt ikunu sostnuti wkoll is-servizzi socjali kollha u s-sistema
tal-penzjonijiet taz-zewg terzi. U dan minghajr ma nkomplu nonfhu d-deficit
tal-budget tal-pajjiz u minghajr ma nkomplu nisplodu d-dejn nazzjonali.

Meta nisma` lil xi nies jghidu li m’ghandniex problema meta li suppost
jafu hafna aktar x’inhuma l-problemi tal-pajjiz, nibda verament nahseb li jew
certi nies jghixu fil-qamar jew li s-sens ta` responsabbilta` farfruh ghal
kollox. Din li 143,885 ruh iridu jzommu pajjiz b’popolazzjoni adulta ta` 318,393
hi problema li jehtieg tinghata l-importanza li jisthoqqilha!

X’Cans
Ghandha Malta
Tfisser allura li m’ghandniex cans? Dazgur li ghandna! Dan izda
jekk il-problemi niffacjawhom bis-serjeta` ilkoll kemm ahna Gvern, sidien,
haddiema, u s-socjeta` civili ingenerali. L-ewwelnett l-produzzjoni nazzjonali
f’termini ekonomici illum ma tiddependix biss mill-produttivita` tan-nies
tax-xoghol. Pajjiz jista` jkun sinjur f’rizorsi ohra u dan jaghmel tajjeb
ghan-nuqqas ta` nies u ghan-nuqqas ta` produttivita`. Dan izda mhux il-kaz ta`
pajjizna. Ir-rikkezza ewlenija ta` pajjizna hi li n-nies tieghu. Mela kull
sistema jew arrangament li tohloq sitwazzjoni fejn haddiema jistghu jiskappaw
ikunu produtturi, hu ghal kollox inaccettabbli. Zgur li hu att bla sens.
Ghalhekk ma jista qatt ikun iggustifikat f’pajjizna li Gvern, haddiema u sidien
jaccettaw sitwazzjoni fejn jigi ppremjat l-ghazz u tkun iggustifikata l-hela
tar-rizorsi umani taghna, ghax ladarba rridu min-nies u nies bizzejjed bhala
proporzjon li jahdmu m’hawnx bizzejjed, ikun ifisser li kull meta xi wiehed
mill-143,885 ma jahdimx, jiskarta, jew itellef, l-ohrajn iridu jaghmlu tajjeb
ghalih b’zieda mal-174,508 l-ohra li diga mhux qed jikkontribwixxu ekonomikament
dawk li jkunu fil-fatt qed jahdmu u jipproducu. Kull wiehed minna jaf li
b’postijiet tax-xoghol fejn x’uhud jahdmu u ohrajn jiskartaw. Din hi problema
ohra kbira tal-pajjiz. Min hu serju jaf li pajjizna ma jistax jaffordja dan
it-telf ta` produttivita` aktar u aktar jekk qed inhallsu ghalih mit-taxxi
taghna.

Teknologija Ahjar
Nerga nghid li produzzjoni mhux tal-haddiema
biss trid tkun. Pajjiz jehtieg fuq kollox investiment gdid kontinwu u tigdid ta`
li ghandu, ghax illum il-qofol tal-produttivita` nazzjonali m’hix biss il-hila u
l-produttivita` tal-haddiem izda, fuq kollox il-livell u l-kapacita` teknologika
ta` l-apparat u l-makkinarju, kif ukoll il-hila ta` min imexxi u l-kapacita`
organizzattiva tal-post tax-xoghol. Illum jista jkollok produttivita` gholja bi
ftit li xejn nies. Ghalhekk hu mpoprtanti, f’pajjizna forsi aktar milli
f’pajjizi ohra, li nibdlu u nzommu nvestimenti tal-oghla livell f’kull qasam.

Ma nistghux ahna nittolleraw li l-investituri taghna ma jkunux il-hin
kollu imhajra, mhegga u sostnuti sewwa mis-sistema kollha biex ikomplu jinvestu
u jghollu kontinwament l-livell tat-teknologija u ta` tmexxija imhaddem fil-post
tax-xoghol taghhom. Ghalhekk jien dejjem nishaq li r-retorika l-antika ta`
haddiema fuq naha, u tas-sidien fuq in-naha l-ohra, f’pajjizna trid tispicca.
Din ta` ahna u huma trid tinqata`. Ahna ghandna problema kbira. M’ghandniex nies
bizzejjed, bhal proporzjon ta` nies, li lesti biex jahdmu halli wahidhom izommu
pajjiz modern bil-livell ta` rikezza li jixraqlu. Din id-deficenza trid tissewwa
billi nkunu aktar efficjenti u nhaddmu teknologiji dejjem oghla u management
ahjar.

Investiment
Hemm barra m’hemm hadd; la Unjoni Ewropea u l-ebda
forza ohra li ser toqghod tibghatilna l-flus biex nghixu sew bla ma nahdmu u
nghollu kontinwament il-livell tal-produttivita` taghna. Il-haddiem wahdu,
biezel kemm hu biezel, mhux se johloq post tax-xoghol wiehed. Il-Gvern ma jista`
qatt jibqa johlom li jonfoq qisu m’hemmx qiegh. Id-dejn nazzjonali ma jistax
jibqa jikber bir-rata li qed jikber. It-tragedja ghal pajjizna hi li spiccajna
b’tant nies minn kull nazzjonalita` – Korejani, Filippini, Nigerjani, Tunezini,
Sirjani, Egizzjani, Jugoslavi, Albanizi, Rumani, Libjani u ohrajn li jahdmu
f’pajjizna ufficjalment u anke b’mod illegali meta fl-istess waqt ghandna 12,000
Maltin disponibbli ghax-xoghol u m’ghandhomx xoghol!

Ma nistghux nibqghu
f’pajjizna nisimghu lil min irid jinvesti u johloq ix-xoghol igerger u jaqta`
nifsu, meta pajjizna jiddependi aktar u aktar mill-investituri privati, kemm
il-ftit kbar, u wisq u wisq izjed l-eluf zghar. Zgur li ma nistghux nibqghu
sejrin b’din il-hela kollha ta` rizorsi, specjalment fis-settur pubbliku – dak
is-settur li flusu jridhom minn fuq l-ohrajn li jahdmu ghall-esportazzjoni u
ghall-qliegh minn barra. Irridu bil-fors aktar produttivita`; l-ewwel u qabel
kollox tan-nies taghna. Kieku ahna rridu nafu bis-serjeta` norganizzaw
il-postijiet tax-xoghol taghna u ma jkollniex bzonn dawn il-barranin kollha li
diga hawn f’pajjizna. Hawn la l-haddiema u lanqas min imexxi ma jistghu jahdmu
wahidhom. Bil-fors flimkien.

Produttivita`
Il-problema ta`
l-immigrazzjoni qed ingibuha b’idejna stess ghax f’pajjizna hloqna wisq fsied.
Ta` dan il-fsied qed inhallsu qares u ghada ser ikollna spluzjoni socjali bla
qies. Dan kollu ghax fil-bidu tas-seklu 21 ma kellniex il-hila nsolvu l-ftit
problemi li ghandna. Jekk wiehed jigbed ‘l hawn u l-iehor ‘l hemm,
il-produttivita` u l-organizzazzjoni fil-postijiet tax-xoghol taghna ma tizdied
qatt! Bla zieda fil-produzzjoni nazzjonali l-ghawg se jibqa` jikber u nghaddu
l-problemi ghall-futur. Irridu zgur fuq kollox hafna aktar investimenti u hajra
ghat-tkattir tat-teknologija u ghall-uzu dejjem ahjar tal-facilitajiet li
ghandna. Ghandna wisq spazji u facilitajiet bi produzzjoni baxxa jew b’uzu
hazin. Meta r-rizorsi taghna ma nuzawhomx sewwa, ma jkollniex cans li nghollu
l-produttivita` nazzjonali. Ghandna fuq kollox htiega kbira ta` aktar tahrig u
ta` iktar incentivi biex kull min hu kapaci jahdem, jahdem.

Pajjizna
jixraqlu ahjar. Jista` jkun ahjar. Izda baqa` hafna u hafna xi
jsir!
