Wages/Salary
« on: January 10, 2012, 12:03:02 PM »

Should a worker that works a less desirable, physically demanding job make more money/better money than a worker that sits at a desk in a temperature controlled environment?
Are all workers currently being paid what they deserve to be paid?
Are current wages and salaries too high, too low, or just right?
What solution is needed, if any?

Workers/employees should be free to negotiate salary and fringe benefits with their potential employers to the end where they (the individual and the employer) negotiate a mutually beneficial employment agreement. Regardless of the job or position, the employment contract is between the employer and the potential employee. No one else.

You don't spend ten years and a half-million dollars learning to dig a hole.

Its between the employee, and employer. There isn't a standard "should" here to discuss.

One of my (many) brother-in-laws did. He went to chemical engineering school to learn how to drill for oil. Got pretty good at it, too. Now, he's VP of an oil company.

Intelligent and/or lucky people should make more money than those that are neither intelligent nor lucky.

I think it still depends on the hierarchy that the job is in. Or better yet, if a job would present more income to earn, the workers should be paid more. If it presents little or no revenue they should be paid a bit less
