To pay or not to pay: that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to paye in full
The salaried and hourly,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And insist on attendance? Loyalty: morale;
Be they more wish’d to hold than coin? Ay, there’s the rub;
The heart-ache may bring the thousand natural shocks
That employer flesh is heir to, ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d.
With props to the Bard. Word.
Here is the Wall Street Journal’s take – though sadly not in verse.
