on Wage Woes
As a small business owner, I have always paid people well in comparison to our industry standard. This is because I try to find nice, knowledgeable, bright and service oriented people - and then I want to hold onto them. I would rather hire top notch people for fewer hours then less loyal or knowledgeable people for many hours at a low wage. People who work here tend to stay for many years. If you can retain employees for years, and have people who are wonderful to work with for both you and your customers, what better investment is there for your business? It affects the entire climate of your workplace. Plus it takes an enormous amount of time and energy to train new people.
