I'm talking about 50%, or even a doubling of your wages. Want to know what to do?
John Taylor Gatto's work suggests a powerful method; get rid of your manager. No, not by hiring someone from the Mob. No, no, no!
Rather, Gatto (again, no, not Gotti!) reminds us that 13% of wage-earners in the USA were managers a few years back--and that includes millions of small businesses having no manager at all. Contrast that with about 4% in Japan, and add in HR, PR, Benefits, and other "helper" organizations, and you'll find that "overhead" costs take a disproportionate share (I'm guessing 30% or more in most companies) of resources available to "the help." Put simply, managing people is a difficult enterprise, and takes a lot of work.
So how do you give yourself that raise? Work in such a way that your manager doesn't have a lot to do, or find a way to ply your trade as an entrepreneur.
