First we may need to understand how to achieve honesty. Honesty in all life always is the direct result of love toward all. Without true love toward ALL there can be no honesty at all.
True love toward all requires selflessness. Selflessness includes your full efforts to create well being and happiness in all others above all. If you care for the needs and well-being of all others, Then God and all others shall care for your own well-being.
What is a honest salary or honest price?
The definition I apply to my own life as well as all my visitors is simple. Pay exactly the same salary per hour as you earn in your own job in your own country. No matter where you use other people's services or product. That means if you earn 6 dollars per hour and take a local transportation for sightseeing tour or a tour guide for a trekking tour, then you him 6 dollars for each of his hours he spends for you.
If you charge 50 EURO per hour for your services, then you pay 50 Euro for every hour of your cleaning lady, housemaid, driver or gardener as well!
And if you earn 5000 US$ per hour - then you pay 5000 US$ per hour!If however you have NO money or tiny amounts only because you are jobless = to lazy or overqualified to do ANY job offered that needs to be done. Then you either may have to ask for free stuff: "give me free bread or free apartment I am too lazy to work to pay for it". This may work a few times. One day you may get your ass kicked and get nothing at all. Hence there is a lower limit of how much still is honest.
On our planet we have dozens of millions or may be hundreds of millions jobless people. Some of them I saw with my own eyes simply feel too good to do any job needed for the prices offered and they prefer to hang around and do nothing at all rather than to work for 2 or 5 dollars an hour cleaning streets or toilets or loading trucks, etc.
There are situations in life were we all have to strip down all our demands and just do what needs to be done at the price affordable to be paid! It is our all duty to work, to be useful and to contribute our own share of work and services in exchange to all the products and benefits we love to enjoy in our lives.
What is the benefit for paying honest salaries to employees?If you treat your suppliers or employees like you would treat your own Children or family members. With love and dignity. The you are considered a father rather than a boss. Your employees or customers become your family. You no longer need protection or security as all feel deep in their hearts that you treat them with dignity and love as equal human beings.
Honest prices and honest salaries result in a working and living environment flooded with mutual love and happiness. In a honest living environment where work and private life becomes one, we no longer need fences, guards and tribunals or lawyers. Our heart can solve all eventual conflicts before they actually occur.
How can honest wages regulate our global market and balance our entire global business environment?
There are many among you who may rebel now and say: Then I no longer can afford to have employees or I no longer can maintain my industry or business.
Fine! Then it be and you close down your business that grew only at the expense of other people being exploited! Then your employees loose their underpaid jobs and gain their dignity and freedom back. Without jobs, without industries in cities, all employees eventually return home to their provinces and start their healthy natural but simple and happy life all over again. Ten years later they have fully recovered from the period of exploitation and have become again self sustaining farmers, fishermen, carpenters, etc!The only one who really looses his job is you. Most of the investors, bankers, CEOs, managers, etc would be nothing at all in their lives without employees doing the actual work, the actual service or production! You as an exploiting and abusing employer had dreams far too large to be executed and realized by your own financial means and your own physical capabilities and potential. You may have exceeded by far your very own limits for an extended period of time at the expense of all society, at the expense of investors luring for easy money and quick profits and most of the time at the expense of our entire planet and nature that keeps us alive.
If however you are truly spiritual and open heart-open minded. The follow below mathematical model and understand how such a simple rule like paying honest salaries or honest prices may instantly auto-regulate the entire global market, global industry and our all life at once.
To help you understand the model, I use some numbers out of my own life. You may adapt these numbers to your own situation and you fully understand the power of self regulation that is within honesty in business and life!Last year (2009) my annual average per hour was about 5,20 US$. Living modest and simple, doing a job I love. That amount is plenty if you consider that the potential working day has up to 24 hrs with just a few breaks. If you love your job, you rarely get tired at all. Love feeds you and keeps you healthy and awake until job done.
To simplify the example, lets take 5 US$ per hour. Means if you earn that amount. You pay for your riksha 5$/hr, for your housemaid 5$/hr and for your hairdresser as well 5$/hr, etc. For every hour of service you enjoy to receive FROM others you pay 5$/hr!
If you use 8 hrs of housemaid, 4 hours of baby sitter or sales girl, 3 hrs of gardener or driver per day, then you pay 15 hrs 5$ each = 75$ wages paid out per day. If you work yourself 15 hrs each day, that would leave you zero $ per day for you. Hence you would need to increase your own working hours.
You are human and most likely never manage to work more than 20 hrs per day over an extended period of time. That means the maximum you can earn would be 100$ per day. Leaving you 25 $/day for your own life after deduction of your honest pay outs to all your servants and helpers in your life.
May be that might be enough if your overall living is most simple and cheap. Most likely you may find that amount too little to keep alive and motivated. Hence you reduce the number of hours you use other people's services until you make ends meet again.
May be in an average you work 15 hrs a day and use 3 hrs of services from others and you may feel OK.As you see from above example, there are self regulatory mechanisms built into honesty in payments made to others, payments for services and / or products.
To live with the honesty model you have to stay within your own limits of business size. There is NO way to become a global dominating leader in any industry. That exactly is the purpose and power of honesty in business. There is absolutely NO need at all that a few companies dominate and exploit all world. There is no need at all that mega companies hire hundreds of thousands of employees to grow bigger and bigger until they eventually collapse. The larger a company, the more administration cost that company has, the less efficient and the more environment destructive that company is. Huge companies have top level management earning dozens or hundreds of millions a year including all bonuses and expenses, private jets, private cars with drivers, body guards, etc.
If you stay family business size, you need to body guard, no protection, no administration, no expenses. A family business or as in my case one person PLUS God operation has exactly zero administration, zero expenses, only a decent life in harmony with God and tons of work to be done. No secretary answering phone calls or e-Mails. I dropped long time ago all bla bla calls and mails completely.
The ultimate goal of all mankind is a happy life in freedom. Freedom requires love from all and toward all. Freedom requires that all are self employed, freelance and their own boss. Hence employment of any kind should only be considered temporary. For example to gain experiences, to learn, to be apprentice for a short while and then move on in life to continue further learning and acquiring skills until mature and ready for self employment.
In a society of strong self employed "bosses" without any underprivileged employees, we have acquired a deep appreciation of each others' values and are all willing to pay honest prices or exchange values on a 1:1 basis where we need and enjoy other people's services or products.
If you stay family business size, you have instant global benefits:
- You need no advertisement at all. You serve your local community and your customers value and appreciate your services or products. Hence you get all customers by worth of mouth.
- No need to outperform competitors. No need to compete with competitors. You have your local community, Others have theirs - all work together serving all mankind, all creation instead of competing with each other.
- You need no patents or brand name protection. You serve in one community leaving the entire global market to millions of other family businesses alike. Each serving their own local community. Instead of completing, you are helping each others to serve mankind, planet and creation.
- You need no spy-protection as you have no secrets. Instead you share your recipes of success with all world to help many others to learn from you and do the same as you in their own neighborhood.
- Small size local business have far less or no pollution and can easily be in full harmony with nature
- Local need oriented family business have limited or no need for logistics. You mainly use local products for local customers. Hence need for energy is limited, need for transportation and logistics is minimal. Instead of a life in luxury you opt for a life in happiness. Having more time for your family, being amidst your entire family all time. Working and enjoying live together as a family endeavor.
- Instead of outsourcing to cheap countries, you do all locally and yourself.
Leaving same full job opportunities to all others in the world. Thus leaving same revenue opportunities to those otherwise working with below minimum wages in third world countries. No one is working for you - all are their own boss providing whatever generic demand needs to be satisfied.
What happens if we refuse to pay honest wages?The first result is a loss of trust between employees and employers. The next step is a loss of social peace and eventually long lasting legal battles. Employers loose such legal battles and are forced to pay at least legal wages. No one really benefits from enforced minimum wages because such minimum wages in third world countries such as in the Philippines are a ridiculous joke! The same applies to most other third world countries industrial salary system.
Below are a few pages from a real scenario case that occurred just recently. Poverty in the Philippines is like poverty in most countries of 2 root causes: Exploitation or laziness. Laziness often results from lack of motivation to work a full day for less than the cost of daily living. If for example you fail to afford daily local fruits for your own children or basic health care or basic professional education for your family and children. Then how can you expect someone to work 20 hrs a day if he still fails to make ends meet each month. Even worst if he never can afford even week now and then to travel, enjoy and explore his very own country!
Cheap labor often has been lured from remote provinces into cities. Once in the city living fro extreme underpay such work immigrants rarely ever can safe the money needed to return home to their own provinces. Worst even. Often these people gave all their property away for a tiny amount to pay travel to industrial cities. Once all property gone, there is nothing at all waiting at home. No farm land, no house, all gone for life. Once in such deep shit, employers have easy job to maintain a cheap labor. Living in slums or slum like colonies, working for micro amounts just to avoid death by starvation .... and all just to satisfy the need and greed of investors and rich business men looking for even more profits and greater wealth.When employers fail to pay honest salary, then employees get into troubles, entire families drift into poverty and entire future generations lack basic professional qualifications to conduct a happy life. All such chain reactions purely for a quick profit of greedy employers or investors. Greed and stinginess are destructive mental and spiritual illnesses that need to be healed just like any other virus.
When a business man needs more money, he simply reduces expenses or increases prices to balance his budget again. When underpaid employees need more money, they either ask for higher wages or change jobs or drift into poverty for life. Usually higher wages are refused in third world countries. Legal minimum wages are a joke and far below the amount needed for a decent happy family life. Changing job often is impossible because all employers use same strategy to exploit the need of poor ones. In most countries of the third world the employers are either expats or corporations financed by rich ones from in and out of country or banks. Hence inn most cases there is no loving solutions but to either accept solid underpay or to die!
Honesty in business is as rare on this planet as 10 carat diamonds inn the streets of New York. The typical characteristics of a business man is to earn as much for the lowest amount of work and the smallest amount of investment. See the global crisis in US car industry as well as other global industries and its management levels bonus systems.
Can you pay more for other people's services than you earn yourself?
Yes of course you can. If you feel that a particular service you enjoy is worth more than your 5$/hr then you are free to show your appreciation. But you should avoid paying less than what you earn yourself.
The ultimate benefit for honest prices and honest wages
Honest prices or wages paid by you will after a while make you feel like a real human. Innermost satisfaction and true love received by all those benefiting from your loving honesty in pricing will lead to increased happiness around you and thus to a better and more loving, stronger living environment for you, for your loved ones and best friends. To live in a strong environment is far more fun than to live amidst a bunch of starving exploited slaves.
Remember that you always can live without others at all. However the less services you use or consume from others, the more you may miss some of their services and products and thus the more you learn to appreciate others. This too is self-regulatory. All alone life would be boring and lonely. We are social beings and made to love each other and share all fun and happiness with each other. However we all have to contribute our own share to the well-being of all others as well. By paying a honest salary or honest price to all others we force ourselves to work and produce more than we need from others. Hence we force ourselves to produce abundance and out of this abundance we have a honest contribution or honest value in exchange of services needed or enjoyed from others.Once we strictly abide by the principle of paying honest wages or honest prices, we self regulate our own creative production and consumption in harmony with our God made limits. Honest prices paid eliminates waste of goods and resources and balances the consumption to within healthy natural limits of available resources. We are the main resource and our own physical life force is the limit of our production and consumption.
To offer value in return for values received we have to acquire qualifications, skills and deploy God given creative productivity within our own limits.♥ Study and apply Jesus teachings of Love offered to you for free instant download by the Cyberspace Ashram for Kriya Yoga, God and Love to turn into and maintain your entire life as an exciting adventure of love until again HOME in God's world of love.
