Education is the step of life leading people to the higher pedestal of social hierarchy. In terms of jobs, education signifies the level of merit, the capability to outthinking the rest of the competitors, knowledge about a certain aspect, and wisdom.
The entrepreneur organizations have designed their employment requirements in educational merit, along with other merits that revolve over skill, understanding, creativity, and tailored instantaneous reactions to certain stimulants in a certain job.
The economic world discerns the highly educated from the lesser ones by implementing the term “human capital.” Human capital refers to the property of a certain individual, their ability towards providing their required service. Educational standards have been set in motion to exist as a benchmark of expected or minimum performance to quantify the abstract form of human quality.
Therefore, when it arrives at the lower section of the social pyramid, people with unenhanced IQ are usually tasked with workings that require pure skill, with the very little thought process to go along with the action. The conception of enhancement is defined upon the fact that these individuals, with all their technical and practical knowledge, can help maintain and improvise the certain job they are tasked with; however, they cannot express any creative inundation they might have inflicted upon that certain task. Due to the unenhanced IQ and the base and lower structure of the social pyramid, they are greater in number. These people have a greater supply of them in the labor market. With a limited demand, and overwhelming supply, the equilibrium wage that the market forces dictate is lower, and thus, blue-collar jobs have poor pay.
Climbing up the walls of the social pyramid, one encounters fewer and fewer people. However, the individuals residing there have a greater human capital. They can articulate their actions in terms designed for the greater understanding of a human being. These people can introduce new forms of action into the corporate sector, simultaneously weighing out the pros and cons that linger over the said action.
Individuals mentioned here have been inducted into formal educational institutions where they are taught how to think, learn, grow and prosper most efficiently and productively. Armed with such knowledge of operations, they are better equipped to lead and order out actions since they can control the design of their orders. Thus, they are highly revered among corporate employers. Due to such great demand for their versatility, enhanced human capital, accompanied by a very few supplies of such individuals, the market forces appreciate their equilibrium wage. Thus, white-collar jobs have a more handsome payment.
In conclusion, educational standards and merits are the greatest influencers in employment since they signify capability and ability to conduct oneself in a refined manner. However, other factors, such as experience and skill, also skew the employers’ decisions. Thus, a set of compromises is accepted to find an employee tailored to their requirements and store balance in the labor framework of the management.
