El debate interminable del salario minimo y justo

Este articulo que reporta a un ejecutivo de Seattle (ahora se porque @piporro esta bien tocadiscos) que decidio ser mas "justo" con sus empleados despues de escuchar a uno de ellos decir que tenia muchos problemas para pagar sus gastos y deudas ganando solamente $40,000 dolares al a~o

Por lo que decidio cortar su salario y ganancias y pagarle a sus empleados un minimo de $70,000 dolares al a~o

El problema fue que sus empleados, los que son claves para su empresa no lo vieron con buenos ojos ya que alguien sin ninguna preparacion y que aporta un minimo a la generacion de ganancias esta haciendo el mismo dinero que un de sus empleados claves lo que los llevo a renunciar

No hay ningun incentivo para ser mas productivo es la moraleja de esta historia bien intencionada

La empresa esta ya en problemas porque la gente que la sostiene con sus abilidades y conocimento esta renunciando. Aparte de otros problemas como los socios que estan inconformes porque los reditos a su inversion se han evaporado. Y la posibilidad de expandir operaciones ahora es mas dificil por falta de capital humano y monetario.

You can ignore economics, but economics won’t ignore you.

That’s the tough lesson Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments, a Seattle credit-card processing company, is learning.

Four months ago, Price announced he’d slash his own multimillion-dollar pay and set a company-wide $70,000 minimum wage.

He got the idea after a friend explained her difficulty paying back student loans and surviving on $40,000 a year — a salary many Gravity employees were making.

Price’s stand against income inequality made him an immediate darling of the left.

But key employees saw it differently.

Financial manager Maisey McMaster liked the idea at first — until she thought about it.

“He gave raises to people who have the least skills and are least equipped to do the job,” she told The New York Times. Meanwhile, “The ones who were taking on the most didn’t get much of a bump.”

She thought it would be fairer to give smaller raises, with the clear chance to earn more with experience. Price brushed off her doubts; she quit.

Also out the door: Web developer Grant Moran. He says, “Now the people who were just clocking in and out were making the same as me.” Plus, having your pay level a very public matter is a problem, with “friends now calling you for a loan.”

Moral of the story: Some people work harder than others; some have stronger skills — and they don’t think it’s fair that they’re paid the same as others.

Price will soon be left only with workers worth his chosen minimum wage — or less.

The company is already in chaos thanks to the policy — but the big problem is ahead, as it tries to keep growing and innovating with only mediocre talent.
