The real bad news is that employers violate a the fair labor standards act that has been in force since 1930. The employment relationship should not be based on trying to pay as little as possible. The difference in your business is the people. Their level of engagement is what makes your business thrive.

Thanks for the shoutout. As I say, it's time to start a discussion on this issue.


I think most of us would agree on the importance of paying people appropriately as well as the critical role employees play in the success of any business. I think that characterizing labor law compliance as merelying trying to pay as little as possible, however, may be way oversimplifying the compliance challenge that these dated laws present us in this new - and rapidly evolving - world of work. I appreciate the comment and perspective, though.


You're welcome - happy to play our role in getting the conversation going!
