Things employees can do to earn more money and make the company more profitable.
A plumbing contractor once told me of a young employee demanding a raise because he needed more money to pay his bills. He seemed oblivious to the fact that most pay increases are based on performance, not need.
At first, I was shocked by that employee's gall, but after looking at the situation from his perspective, I realized it's easy to identify with that young man. Everyone wants to make more money, and many need to make more money than the job they have can realistically pay. It's the main reason people go looking for better-paying jobs or start moonlighting. It drives people of low character to steal from employees or customers.
