Getting paid a good wage means more to people than just making money.
It makes them feel appreciated, needed, and part of the team.
I know, which is why I treat them with respect and give them a safe
and comfortable work environment and I want them properly paid. Which
is why I'm wondering where that number ought to be.
They'll let you know.
There have been a number of people who have left the company I'm
working at, for more money, who then came back. As the latest guy said
"Compared to there, this place is NASA!" And the latest guy to "take
a vacation", already the pool is forming for when the company will
call him up and make him a better offer. Not bad "for a kid w/o even
a GED." More power to him.
Meanwhile, I'm back in the Robos. I actually don't mind the work,
and I can set up stuff for the "new guys", and make good parts, too.
Sure, I'd like more money, but am I worth it to the company? Or
am I living over my means?
