:: Yes, Barry. I pay them by the piece...Their pay is linked directly to their motivation. It is determined their pay by their efficiency.

: An amazing post, Stuart.

: Simply amazing.

: Are you aware that Stalin was big on piece work?

Again, ignorance is your prime motivator. Time and time again you have found an argument only in the abstract of theories and not in the facts of the matter. My employees are well paid, Barry. I'd tell you what they make if I thought it could have the slightest impact on you but I'm sure that if I take a penny of your so-called "surplus value", I'm doomed to end up in your doghouse. So why is piecework a terrible thing if the person makes money well in excess of industry standards?
