Condition of workers key after government signs ag

We know very well that govt owned businesses end up becoming a financial drain on the taxpayer. These businesses are undermined by politicians - managers are selected by the party in power and sacked when a new party gains power. Productivity is severely affected- The workers and management are not profit driven and care less whether the business makes money or not because of the mindset that it’s a govt business. Why do we continue to repeat the same mistakes! Hopefully this will be a short term measure. The govt should either sell the company to a private company or have joint private/public partnership.
