IS IT FAIR TO EVERYONE WHEN A COMPANY GIVES A 5% RAISE TO ALL OF IT'S EMPLOYEES?
ABC Company decided to give all of its employees a 5% raise in 2012. Joe who works in the stock room received a $1,000.00 increase based on his yearly income of $20,000.00 while Fred who is the operations manager received a $10,000.00 increase based on his yearly income of $200,000.00. Joe is furious that Fred and others in management received ten times as much as he did. (Premise taken from an article that appeared in our local newspaper) In your opinion is Joe justified in feeling as he does?
