In This Episode

In this week’s episode of The Prosperous Tradesman Podcast I’m highlighting what I believe is a fundamental flaw in how standardised pay rates for tradesmen are structured. The current predominant system says that all electricians are the same and should be paid the same regardless of capability, application and productivity.
This system of pay is just so wrong as it encourages workers to stagnate and discourages them from pursuing higher levels of productivity. It’s my view that needs to change for the benefit of employers and for employees.
