I’ve worked a few production jobs making glass and also handmade tiles.I’d like to hear what you guys think- I believe the hourly wage for skilled people is a broken system. Productive people are penalized while unproductive people are rewarded. Money is exchanged for time, rather than skill. While I’m not sure what the best solution is, I believe the people who crack this one will have enough and happy employees. Thoughts?
Both had a minimum hourly wage but also paid per piece. If the piece work was greater than the hourly that’s what you got paid.
As a late teen I was making x3-4 minimum wage.
