Is there such thing as getting paid too much for work?

Let’s face it. We are all out there trying to earn the 💰most money for the job but can people get paid too much🤑? Is there a "right amount" to get paid? #letstalkpay #moremoney #watercooler

Yes you can get paid too much but that's not something I'm worried about. Earn your keep, be smart, and you'll have all the wealth you need.

Yes you can get paid to much,and you will know it if happens. Some will just take the money while others will seek more work duties to compensate. A good problem for everybody to have! Ford

Salary is determined by Hiring Companies! The company will normally base your salary on credentials, track record, company's budget and profit, market comparisons and many other possible factors. If a company decides to pay you a Salary YOU feel is too much; shut up and don't whine; but Shine like the noon day Sun! Too much is too comparable!!!

Technically that's how it would logically start in the process of hiring someone in a salary position but depending on what that person does and the value it has to the company 1 could end up working many more hours than agreed upon Menards. Myself I'm an engineer and I've held numerous positions within the hospitality industry as well as other related positions where my skill-set was critical to building function. I can honestly say that I never worked less than my 45 to 50 hours agreed upon and almost always worked at least 20 - 30 or even more hours depending on what was going on. If I had been able to work the 45 to 50 hours at my salary oh, I would have been making great money but when you break down the hours I actually worked sometimes it dropped under $20 an hour which I have so much more invested in my career to except that. It's just my personal experience and perspective.

Rates are still determined by supply demand relationship depending on the nature of work and geography. My wife's workplace increased the rate of nurses by $34 per hr. for about 2 weeks resulting from covid infections of some nurses who refused to get vaccinated. It was needed to motivate the remaining nursing staff to extend working hours to cover the deficit. If you work as a contractor for a recruiting company like I do, I know that I'm underpaid even as $60/hr looks big for many people. I know that the recruiting company stil has a net margin of 12% to 15% after overhead/administrative cost as they charge the hiring company at least $80/hr. for my job.

I can't really relate to the question. How many working people can relate to the question?What is too much? Thr reverse is usually the norm.Most people make far below what they want to earn.

Lower categories of jobs are not getting paid commensurate to work they're employed for. If you read d specs of a simple job offers at McDonald or other big businesses, they offer you less n below minimum wage. How can one individual pay his rent, buy foods for himself or his family and enjoy extra self endulging to buy clothes or eat out in a fine restaurants once in every pay day, bcz d salary offers are so small. All these giants and multimillionaire business owners prayed on poor people to work hard and can't even save money for themselves and for their children's futures. Each and every hard working immigrants and minorities are hard workers and dedicated to keep their meager income salaries in order to survive.
