Pay Minimum – Get Minimum?

Well hello there, long time no blog – I have been rather busy…

So the year seems to be whipping along fast and as yesterday was the 1st of April, as well that being April Fools’ Day it was also minimum wage increase day.

One of my friends and I were discussing that people on minimum wage today get an extra $0.50c to take home, but we were wondering if an employer paid more do they get more work from that person?

We both seem to agree that yes if you pay minimum you’re likely to get minimum work, like “Pay Minimum – Get Minimum” or “Pay Peanuts – Get Monkeys”. That said, paying people more is obviously hard in the current economic situation, employers have two options in my mind, they could employ two people and pay them minimum wage or employee one person and pay them more and expect more work.

Right, back to work before I turn into a monkey.
