Research Says Everything Is Better When You Pay People More

If you pay entry-level employees well, the benefits reach all the way to the top and then they trickle all the way back down to the bottom and then they go all the way back up to the top and all the way back down again and everyone is happy: “At the upper echelons of the American workforce, salaries have soared. Companies are accustomed to thinking of their highest-level employees as “talent,” and fighting to hire and reward people who will help grow the company. Now Trader Joe’s and QuikTrip are proving that lower-level employees can be assets whose skills improve the bottom-line as well.”

@Megano! Yeah, this information is accurate and also…not surprising. Like at all

God, is it sad that working as a cashier someplace would be a payraise for me? It is, isn’t it. So much sadness.

At the same time I’m glad someone’s finally gleaned this fact from the world. Bring the bottom up and the top rises as well (or something like that perhaps with less fortune cookie phrasing)

@la_di_da Right there with you. That cashier job pays almost DOUBLE what I make right now, working full-time. And it really is the saddest thing ever.
