Plus depending on the person they could go back to school and try to get even more increase in their wages and incomes.

A cross the nation standard minimum wage is another issue There should be a a two tier higher minimum wage depending on the jo you are preforming. A higher minimum wage we should have people should not have to struggle but who fault is that the person or the
Increasing the minimum wage would rise economic activity and spur job growth. It could also reduce government spending and lessen income, race and gender inequality. Despite the good intentions, it is ineffective and minimum wage is a uncertain policy that should be questionable for anyone concerned with the troubles of the poor. Minimum wage does not help to solve the poverty problem. If labor market has no restrictions, the wage would adjust so that anyone willing to work could find a job.
For example, if someone only has a few absences and is rated highly, that positive attribute might leak over into all the other categories of work. , Leniency, giving an undeserved higher rating on the appraisal. This usually happens when there is a desire to avoid controversy, or when there is a pay increase at stake, but it doesn’t help the employee grow. Strictness, giving an inordinately negative appraisal to an employee. A supervisor may have higher standards than the company and use them in the appraisal, resulting in lower score.
People believe that being poor gives you an incentive to work harder, because the rewards are greater and more satisfaction of earning something you had to work for. Because if people just hand you opportunities and money, you wouldn’t treated the same way as someone who had to work for, it wouldn’t be no competitive for people to outwork others to make more money, because that’s what gives you the satisfaction and motivations to keep going when things get hard, the reward. Therefore if we didn’t have income inequality, the world would be different and even technologies wouldn’t be this advanced as it is now, because workers taking their jobs seriously and some even work harder to impress the boss for raise. In my opinion I favor income inequality but I’m against inequality at early age, because I experienced the struggle of inequality opportunities in the early age, and I believe no children should. Poverty in America are caused by two structural, one is by individual, people
Susan states that no matter how you call it “compensation, salary, bonuses, benefits or remuneration, money pays the bills”. Even though, it may not be their most important motivator, nonetheless earning a living is a factor in any discussion about employee motivation. After that the author starts to talk about the motivation besides money. She says that most rewarding and motivating at work is being recognized for
If an individual believes that the return they are getting is equal to that of other employees, then the individual will be content. However, the opposite will occur if the individual perceives there to be inequity. Bennett goes on to suggest that if individuals compare the inputs of their jobs with the outputs experienced, and perceive that they are not paid enough, an individual will reduce their efforts. A drawback to this theory is that it is difficult to measure an individual's perception of equity as well as identifying the inputs and outputs from a job (Kreitner et al,
Firstly, minimum wage helps to reduce the poverty. According to UKEssays, when they being paid equally due to their work it will help them to support themselves and their family rather than they are not being employ. From my understanding is when the minimum wage being imposed to the people, even though they are not working in the better position to get money for living, but with this implementation of minimum wage in every state help them to get money to support their cost living even not being paid as much as the good position worker. As for example, in Malaysia the current rate for the minimum wage RM1000 not less than that so as in the reality to live in urban area it might not enough to support themselves for the whole month but it really encourages people to find job so they will be paid as low as RM1000 per month rather then they have to wait for the public assistance is not really much rather than they go to work and being
Someone will achieve a higher level of overall happiness when earning a mid-salary in a job that they enjoy, rather than a high-income in a job that one hates, because of: happiness compared to money and materialistic values, the overall health benefits and finally, happiness as a essential tool to be successful in the career. Through pop culture and mainstream media, we believe that the more money we make, the happier we are. This has developed from countless generations of the lower income being treated badly by the wealthy and the
Yes I believe it is wrong, even though it's true to this day, employees should have been paid living wages, and should have been treated right for generating so much for the people at the top of the company. I believe they should have rebalanced their priorities, by helping their workers more, and getting them involved in decision making. Although, at the same time, looking at it from an executive position, or shareholders position, they wouldn’t have made the money they
“Adding incentives” (Source A) to motivate a worker instead of “Paying high wages” would prove a better strategy as it would sustain the amount of money gained and allow for the use of more employees. Although the USPS is already losing money, gambling a risk would potentially allow it to become “the first carrier to reliably deliver all week” which would give them more faith in a system of “spotty service”, (Source
220) Ehrenreich is saying the more effort you put into a low-wage job, does not necessarily mean success in terms of a better job or a higher income. Ehrenreich’s argument disputes the idea that having more jobs is a benefactor even if you put in loads of effort. Many of the employers who look at your résumé and/or application will find it compelling—due to the job experience—to give employees a pay raise/a promotion to a better job that can have a bigger pay. Ehrenreich criticizes employers by stating, “Employers are of course behaving in an economically rational fashion: their business isn’t to make their employees more comfortable and secure but to maximize the bottom line.” (pg. 204) Ehrenreich judges how employers care about capitalizing a business/company more than ensuring the well-being of an employee.
Under the new provisions, employees have the opportunity to gather information before filing claims, instead of filing claims that had little or not merit. This act puts more pressure on employers to pay equal money for equal work, regardless of sex. During the previous rule, employees filed claims they could not support, allowing for the companies to win the decisions in court. Under the new guidelines, employees can now take their time in gathering information, building a stronger case against their employer. The benefit of this for employers would be less lawsuits filed against them, unfortunately, if they are discriminating against an employee, it means they could end up paying more in damages then
In order words, Walsh is insisting that FMLA should become more affordable. Moreover, there should be some sort of pay that is provided during the leave of absence. Employees’ motivations to be productive are driven by many factors; one of which is compensation. According to Walsh, one study has shown that countries that have provided paid parental leave had a greater positive effect on productivity and retaining of employees than unpaid leave (Walsh,
But yeah it is nice to have extra money by raising minimum wage but it is going to be the same thing overall, if not worse the bills are going to go up with it. Raising minimum wage could reduce the benefits you get such as insurance, vacation, and your future. Raising it as well means what about all the people that already have their worked their way to what the minimum wage wants to be set at. Do they expect them to stay at that same wage or go up as much as minimum wage raised. It is hard to raise the minimum wage therefore it shouldn 't.
White finds several strong arguments in favour of basic income from the point of fair reciprocity. First, improving the minimum wage would allow workers to rely less on their wages for day-to-day survival and possibly improve labour market employment opportunities, thus meeting the first core commitment- non-immiseration. Secondly, implementation of a basic income would allow some individuals to continue to make other contributions to society that weren’t adequately acknowledged and compensated for by society to begin with, which acknowledges White’s third core commitment- work as a challenge. Thirdly, the implementation of basic income would put pressure on employers to improve the quality of their employee positions, increasing the opportunity to satisfy the third core condition- achieving self-actualization in work. Lastly, a basic income would create a safe guard against income exploitation, fulfilling White’s core condition two (White, 2003 pp.155-156).
