John Fire, one could similarly say that limiting the average worker's chance of profit is extremely demotivating as well. If you're working as a general labourer in a meat packing plant and supporting 3 kids, for example, your disposable income is likely fairly low. You likely don't have a lot of time or money to educate yourself further, and in many cases your raises are few and far between. At a job like this, what reason does the worker have to work any harder than he needs to just not get noticed as a slacker? You often get the same amount of social loafing in a crummy corporation that you would in a state corporation. What's the difference between 'working for the man' or working for the state really?
Allow workers to become shareholders?? That's a fantastic idea! Seriously! If a company actually pays workers more fairly with stock as well, that's a fantastic motivation to improve. Sadly, however, most employers don't do this.
