[QUOTE=SocialDemocrat;1064786650]Management is not a job worthy of more pay than other jobs. There are always going to be discrepancies in wages due to the nature of capitalism, but the idea that given two jobs of equal working time, one is deserving of higher wages is frankly ridiculous. When talking about wages, we are talking about people's livelihoods. That's not something that should be subjected to competition.
Worker self-management is an existing concept. Ending the major discrepancies between in benefits between employer and employee is not going to result in mass chaos because it doesn't mean no one manages. The job of management is democratized.[/QUOTE)
Greetings, Social Democrat.
I don't understand your argument. If I am an employer, and I have two employees doing the same job, and I note that one of them is taking personal time to get more schooling or training, as an example, which one of them am I likely to promote to a higher position with more responsibility? I'm going to lose the best people to a competitor If their effort is not recognized at some point. Management almost always involves being responsible for decision making for the people you manage, plus longer working hours, and is worth higher pay. The saying that "cream rises to the top" has merit in most cases - otherwise it sounds like you are thinking of sweat shops, and most people leave those as soon as they are able.
