Our idea of fair is that everyone gets the same, it’s the difference between equality and equity. The CEO, the manager, and the team leader, all got there by doing their best, and expect the same of you. A good manager knows how to identify which worker can handle what task and, subsequently, reward. This can be hard for workers, wanting to see the same remuneration in the office, but a good manager splits based on equity, not equality.
