“Here’s what the research says about money and salary: Money is a demotivator. Basically what that means is, if I think I’m being paid enough, or I think I’m being paid fairly, then money is neutral. But, if I don’t feel like I’m being paid enough, or I feel like people around me are being paid more, or I don’t think I can pay my bills, then money is a demotivator. I’m demotivated. So, money doesn’t actually motivate people.”
