IT Guy Who Left The Company For Being Unfairly Paid Ended Up Costing The Company $40 Million

Workers should never be treated unfairly.

Employee satisfaction should be the utmost priority of any company. Yes, we have read in the books that profit-making should be the first goal but how do you expect to generate any money if your employees don’t put in the effort you want them to put in? You may raise another point that customer facilitation should be the main focus of the company. My response is, who facilitates the customers? The employees. On top of that employees are also the organization’s internal customers so it is very important that the company makes sure the employees are feeling motivated to surpass their top potential and work efficiently towards achieving the main goals of the business. One way of keeping your employees motivated is by paying them fairly for the work they do. Never underpay your workers because that will demotivate them like crazy and they might start looking for other opportunities before you even know it. And if your best employee leaves just because you didn’t pay them fairly, you might take a really big hit to the business.

Something similar happened in the story we are going to share with you guys today. Reddit user u/slw_motion_trainwrck found an IT job at a factory and got an initial contract signed with a pay of $29,000 per year. But based on the effort they were putting in, this pay was just enough. For years, they hoped for fair treatment but their horrible boss never provided their key employee with the acknowledgment and respect that they deserved. Next thing you know, they left the company and that loss ended up costing the company a whopping $40 Million. Yes, you read that right.

This sounds so frustrating. I feel so bad for the OP for working for this organization for so long and with so much commitment and not being treated accordingly. I seriously didn’t get that math when the boss assigned the two employees to the third location and OP got paid 30K and his coworker got paid 90K. This is so beyond me. I am glad OP submitted their 2 weeks notice because this place does not deserve their skillset and presence.
