We have 8 employees all of whom earn substantially less than the owners.
We treat them fairly pay them well and do not "splash the cash" in an obvious way.
Now they know we are making good money from their efforts(and our own)but do not seem to be jealous or resentful.
Anyone can get the reward of being an employer if they are prepared to assume the risks that go with it.
I visit my home country(UK +France) on a regular basis and all i hear from the "employed" section of my friends is "how lucky I am living and working in the sun etc etc"
I tell them that they can do it too if they choose to.But they ALWAYS have excuses of why the cannot!
I won't list them all but ,mortgage,kids.girlfriends job etc etc are high on the list.
Basically they want what I have but are not prpared to give up anything or take the risk to leave the safe enviroment thet know.(even if it means suffering and complaining)
This is my experience and NOT a personal attack on the poster.
