My employees started talking about salary recently. To make things more fair, we decided to eliminate salary. Baseline performance is considered 50 hours, bonuses are paid for work done above baseline. When you add in ass-kiss multipliers and rat-out-poor-performers multipliers, most employees, er... contractors, can now potentially earn up to 101% of their old salary for only 90 hours of work a week. On a related note, I paid myself a $10m bonus for finding away to eliminate 95% of our health insurance costs.
