Liberals crack me up. They never think about the law of Unintended Consequences because they cannot process ideas to several layers of depth.
This dopey CEO is now paying new/lazy/low-level employees $70K per year while the longtime employees who already made $70K per year see no raise at all.
So the unintended consequence is that the experienced people are quitting due to being dissed. He will end up with a company of overpaid interns and he won't be able to hire replacements because there is no opportunity for salary growth.
By the way, 70 grand is shit money if you have a degree and 10-15 years of work experience.
I made the equivalent of that when I was age 26.
Liberals can't think past what "should" be, they never see unintended consequences. Telling them what "is" will only end up with them calling you a racist, sexist, homophobe, islamaphobe, transphobe, xenophobe, misogynist...
The NY Times did an article on this as well:
“He gave raises to people who have the least skills and are the least equipped to do the job, and the ones who were taking on the most didn’t get much of a bump,” she said. To her, a fairer proposal would have been to give smaller increases with the opportunity to earn a future raise with more experience.
A couple of days after the announcement, she decided to talk to Mr. Price.
“He treated me as if I was being selfish and only thinking about myself,” she said. “That really hurt me. I was talking about not only me, but about everyone in my position.”
Already approaching burnout from the relentless pace, she decided to quit.
The new pay scale also helped push Grant Moran, 29, Gravity’s web developer, to leave. “I had a lot of mixed emotions,” he said. His own salary was bumped up to $50,000 from $41,000 (the first stage of the raise), but the policy was nevertheless disconcerting. “Now the people who were just clocking in and out were making the same as me,” he complained. “It shackles high performers to less motivated team members.”
only a retard would root against this guy
And his brother, a minority shareholder, is now suing him.
Nice little life lesson, eh?
His own employees are leaving him.
But since you're a true liberal with no business sense, you probably think it's good when everyone makes the same salary. It's the socialist way, after all. And we all know how well socialism works!
i'm all for making what you can but i'm wondering how all the $15.00 an hour fast food workers are going to feel when they are replaced by mr. robot and friends?
we shall see.
Let's be serious here for a moment...
This is an American company, right?
There is no way the people already making $70k were working all that hard. THAT'S the American dream - good pay, very little work.
Those people that got the raises will figure that out after they have been working hard for a while. Then they'll slack off like normal and get laid off. Then he'll be able to hire people at a lower wage and give them the chance to get raises.
This was all just a ploy to push out the lazy fucks that were already at the top. Read between the lines.
Ummm...clearly you've never supervised anyone. He cut his own pay to $70K as well.
To be fair, it would triple his salary.
In Venezuela, armed gangs are now robbing supermarkets of things like toilet paper and tooth paste.
That socialist paradise has a capitalist revolution coming soon. I can't believe the shooting hasn't already started.
like I posted somewhere else.
here in Phoenix some security companies think they are doing you a favor by paying 9-10 dollars a hour to guard a crime ridden apartment complex on 3rd shift.
They are getting fucked by the oil price.
My neighbor's kid did security for a lil while at some housing project apartment in Trenton. He said that if any thing happened, he would just lock the door and get under the desk. He traded up to a state job. 21 w/ a state job, kid is set.
socialist retard sez what
They are getting fucked because their socialist government couldn't run a lemonade stand.
I read this week that the beer companies have run out of raw materials, and soon there won't be any beer on the shelves.
