In fact, Easterlin states the more we earn the more we want. According to the study society even starts to believe “wants” are the same as “needs” as our salary grows. Naturally, it would be unrealistic to expect our employers to be responsible for changing these attitudes within our society. Employers are only accountable to the degree of having employees who have a level of happiness with their salary which results in high productivity. Money as Job Incentives The use of money as incentives by business is wise.
This can either give the business confidence as they could be doing better than they thought they were, or it could encourage them to take action in order to improve the position of their business in the economy.

This is because the company may not want to hold any buffer stock.
Do Not Show Me the Money: The Growing Popularity of Non Monetary Incentives in the Workplace With the growing decline of economy, more employers are using non-monetary incentives to motivate employees, yielding positive results. While everyone needs money for the expenses of everyday life, most current and long-standing employees rarely view cash as good motivation. If an employer pays fairly, employees desire appreciation and other non monetary rewards in exchange for a job well done. This trend is becoming more popular as businesses explore ways to motivate employees without breaking the budget. The benefits are far greater for business to offer what employees desire: opportunity to grow, flexible hours, recognition, opportunity to contribute, and autonomy, than to compensate employees with cash.
As said on the book, How Can The Poor Be Helped (pg. 52) by Thomas Gale, it quote, “..at best living wage laws bring about modest benefits at a higher cost to businesses and taxpayers..”so in other words the better the wage the better it helps workers in there needs. Today minimum wage is a very economic problem to this world wide as some people would rather pay a bit extra more because of the way or how much the people may work at the employment, though some want to be equally fair others think otherwise. It actually determined to the economy as a whole so we are talking lots of money to one single person to all working stations. The wage of the federal money is actually $9.80 per hour so no more high limits so said in the webset; http://www.epi.org (Pg.3).
This puts the debt-strapped college grad in the impossible situation of having an income, but not earning enough to cover the basics. Further still, working in food service and retail guarantees an unpredictable schedule. Some retailers will post work schedules only a few days to a week in advance, (Draut, 2005) while others will call their employees at the last minute to fill shifts, thus making it difficult to plan or have a social life. And considering that many college grads work in these industries, it is understandable how this kind of work-stress coupled with financial stress is a recipe for disaster. In addition, employees often risk losing their jobs when they need to miss work to care for sick children.
First, they agreed because there would be lower competitions to your business. Big Business would be happy because smaller companies die out, due to all the new expenses and inspections they can’t afford. Second reason that big businesses agree with the new improvements in the industry is because they don’t have to worry about other companies cheating to get ahead.

This results in higher profit for companies and businesses. When companies have more profit they can expand and make new products.

Motivating Employees Where Raises Are Not Available Monetary incentives increase motivation for the short-term; however, managers who focus on non-monetary incentives helps increase their employees’ motivation which leads to an increase employee retention rates and profits for the company. My goal of this paper is to explain why monetary incentives are an ineffective way to increase motivation, and to provide insight and examples of non-monetary incentives such as a flexible schedule, paid time off, and management recognition that managers can employ to increase and retain their employees’ motivation. Often monetary incentives (i.e. raises) will provide an increase in motivation; however, Dholakiya states that, “The happiness linked to a pay raise wears off quickly. At best, it will have a passing impact on motivation.
Why is there a failure to match up the two pieces of the puzzle? There is a dire need to replace Baby boomers as they are retiring at alarming rates, resulting in a lack of employees to fulfill work requirements. Organizations and their leaders have no choice but to hire Millennials to fill in the voids created by this retirement boom. So, why are Millennials so highly unemployed and underemployed in today’s work environment? The hiring of Millennials is the answer to retaining the knowledge and legacy of the company and the key to future innovations (Kuhl, 2014).
