A huge controversy in the economics world in 2012 has been a possible raise of the minimum wage from $7.25 to $9.00. Many supporters of this increase believe that a $9.00 minimum wage would enable many adults to make enough money to live off for a year. This wage increase would give low-income families a chance to make more money to support themselves and their families. Following this, supporters say these so called “low-income” families would spend more, thus resulting in an increased flow of money in the economy.
However, what these supporters do not see is, many of these families will go to large department stores or super stores to make their purchases. With these large stores getting

(i) such allowances (including dearness allowance) as the workman is for the time being entitled to;

In our country so many people live in poverty. Even if they are working hard and doing everything right. Except the government who has been spending so much money on foreign soil that we have none left to spend on ourselves. Minimum wage is not as high as it should be with all of these outrageous prices and spikes in gas and food. It should at least be bumped up to eight dollars an hour starting out or maybe more. In these times of need we need companies to start appreciating there help instead of working them to death with little to show for it.

Next month, people in SeaTac will vote on Proposition 1-- it would lift the minimum wage to $15 an hour for workers at the airport and its nearby hotels, parking lots and car-rental agencies. That’s a 63 percent increase over Washington’s current minimum wage of $9.19 an hour, the highest of any state.
A year ago, Jorge Sanchez of Long Beach, California was struggling to support his family on $9.75/hour as a dishwasher at a hotel.
Sanchez, 56, threw his support behind hiking the minimum wage to $13 an hour for hotel workers in this city just south of Los Angeles.

Protect My Pay

The importance of having minimum wage is to impose fair wages to all employees regardless of the race, sex or disabilities, how minimum wage impacts the amount labor workers are willing to do and how by setting the minimum wage rates the government is able to ensure fair wages to workers unlike other countries. Some major points to look at are Men and women need to be paid based on their knowledge and kills not on the gender, keeping your employees happy will make for a much more productive output of work by them and the government playing a role in having set a minimum wage that employees must get paid are ways to protect my pay

The imposition of limiting monetary policy in a disjointed wage bargaining context where workers have considerable bargaining rights can have perverse effects. Notwithstanding the tendency of liberal economists to point labor-market rigidities arising from government regulation and active trade unions as the source of unemployment, evidence exist that the nature of macroeconomic policy can also play a role. Macroeconomic policies are essential, especially in ensuring that wage-bargaining systems are able to deliver wage moderation that is favorable to low unemployment levels (OECD, 2011, p. 328). Centralized bargaining systems only work best under an accommodating monetary policy while

Expectancy theory hypothesizes that a person decides to act in a certain way due to their motivation to choose a certain behavior rather than another behavior because of what they expect the outcome of their chosen behavior will be. Hence, an individual will choose the behavior with the most desirable result. Expectancy theory is a type of pay-for-performance theory that focuses on the needs for institutions to reward employees based off of their performance and to ensure that those rewards are desired by the employees. The motivational force of the employee is

Ethical Decision Making
Ethics are principles that define behavior as fair and proper and they are concerned with how a moral person should behave when it comes to making an ethical decision (Josephson Institute of Ethics, 2002). Evaluating and deciding among competing options is often key in making a fair choice since principles do not always dictate a single "moral" course of action.
The decision of whether to lay off workers to enhance profits or to cut corners on quality to meet a deadline are examples of some choices regarding ethics business owners may face (Poznak Law Firm, 2003). The use of extremely low-wage foreign workers, like in the Nike organization case, is a current

great opportunity for the city of Detroit because according to Hantz, “it will restore big chunks of tax-delinquent, provide decent jobs with benefits, supply local markets and restaurant with fresh produce, attract tourists from all over the world, and most importantly, stimulate development around the edges as the local land market tilts from stultifying abundance to something more like scarcity and investors move in” (Whitford, 2009). It’s a great opportunity because with land prices dropping it makes it more possible to succeed in the farm business plus it will hopefully add diversification to the city’s assets.

Although it is accepted that the scientific management enables the management to put resources to its best possible use and manner, yet it has not been spared of severe criticism.
1. Unemployment - Workers feel that management reduces employment opportunities from them through replacement of men by machines and by increasing human productivity less workers are needed to do work leading to chucking out from their jobs.
2. Exploitation - Workers feel they are exploited as they are not given due share in increasing profits which is due to their increased productivity. Wages do not rise in proportion as rise in production. Wage payment creates uncertainty & insecurity

At Commerzbank this theory could be put under scrutiny as every worker may have their own epitome of ‘one best way” to perform a task . His other theory of a ‘fair days of work’ ,may not be successful at Commerzbank as a workers wage depends upon his performance in monetary terms . However, this principle must be viewed with a degree of caution, as the notion of this theory would exclude payments being made to new/untrained employees and trainees. As they may not generate any revenue at all or an insignificant amount for Commerzbank. According to this theory this may lead to a salary which is below the minimum wage .If this was to happen Commerzbank would be breaking the law. It is

Price floor- A price floor is the lowest legal price a commodity can be sold at. Price floors are used by the government to prevent prices from being too low. The most common price floor is the minimum wage--the minimum price that can be paid for labor. Price floors are also used often in agriculture to try to protect farmers. For a price floor to be effective, it must be set above the equilibrium price. If it's not above equilibrium, then the market won't sell below equilibrium and the price floor will be irrelevant.

By 2007, 145 cities and counties across the nation had enacted “living-wage bills,” generally requiring those businesses that receive government contracts to pay wages higher than the legal minimum wage. Maryland’s living wage law requires employers with state contracts to pay workers at least $8.50/hour---higher in some parts of the state, and higher than the state minimum wage ($6.15 an hour, one dollar higher than the federal floor). Nonprofit groups and small businesses (i.e., those with 10 or fewer workers) with state contracts worth less than $50,000 are exempt.

Benchmarking is a skill that every human resource practitioner involved in the compensation process should perform efficiently and correctly.
Accurate benchmarking is the foundation of appropriate salary assessments and market comparisons.
If one benches internal positions incorrectly it may result in selecting the wrong market salary data and setting an inappropriate salary which in turn creates employee dissatisfaction and a higher turn over rate. Clearly, this is a skill that impacts the organization.

There are many reasons why costs might rise. Firstly, component costs: e.g. an increase in the prices of raw materials and other components. This might be because of a rise in commodity prices such as oil, copper and agricultural products used in food processing. A recent example has been a surge in the world price of wheat. Secondly, rising labour costs - caused by wage increases, which are greater than improvements in productivity. Wage costs often rise when unemployment is low because skilled workers become scarce and this can drive pay levels higher. Wages might increase when people expect higher inflation so they ask for more pay in order to protect their real incomes. Trade unions may use

Broke is a film that looks at the sudden boom in the wages of athletes and the impact that overnight going from minimum wage to a multi-million dollar contract can have. On one hand it is a film that sort of needs us to feel sorry for young men who are given wealth beyond the grasp of the vast majority of us but on the other hand it is a serious subject that does need someone to deal with it. As the film observes, often it is people from lower-income backgrounds who have little background in managing larger sums of money who end up winning the lottery overnight with no idea of what to do with it and the impression that it will last

Just because the workers were willing to work for a lower wage and forced to live and work in-humane environments proved to be a form of discrimination. In the 1920’s there was a social prejudice against Mexicans, they were viewed as a threat to the health and morals to the rest of the society (National Park Service, 2004).

Case: How Fog Creek Software Pays Developers
1.) Fog Creek’s pay structure meets the legal requirements of equal pay for equal work effectively. Fog Creek pays all employees within the same skill level at the same pay rate. This eliminates the problem of finding an employee pay rate equilibrium, as all employees make the same rate, given they are on the same skill level. In regards to product markets, Fog Creek’s structure does not effectively meet these requirements. Due to the fact that Fog Creek pays all employees the same wage, and pays higher wages to keep good employee, their cost to make a product may fluctuate higher than their competitors.

After a few trials building cars and companies, in 1903, Henry Ford established the Ford Motor Company. Ford introduced the Model T in October of 1908, and for several years, the company posted 100 percent gains.
However, more than for his profits, Ford became renowned for his revolutionary vision: the manufacture of an inexpensive automobile made by skilled workers who earn steady wages.
In 1914, he sponsored the development of the moving assembly line technique of mass production. Simultaneously, he introduced the $5-per-day wage ($110 in 2011) as a method of keeping the best workers loyal to his company. Simple to drive and cheap to repair, half of all cars in America in 1918 were Model T's.

Thus, full-time work eliminates almost half of the poverty experienced by families with children.” (Sawhill, Haskins.) The Second Simulation is taking single mothers and unmarried men

The labor market works in a parallel way, except the roles are reverse. This market, mostly all firms require labor and individuals such as you and I supply their requirement for a wage compensation. By looking for a job, you are participating actively in the market of labor. The labor market works much like other markets. There are buyers and sellers and they both interact with one another to determine a price of an item. In this case, the "good" being bought and sold is labor and the price for that good is the wage compensation mention earlier. That is
