Right, so, hear me out here
HR pull you in for a meeting and present you with two contracts of your choice. On one it states that your current wage is doubled if each morning before work you score five (5) free throws in a row with a basketball. If you miss even one, you do not get paid for that day. On the other contract, your wage has decreased by 30%.
Unfortunately you can’t just quit your job. It has to be one or the other in this situation, I’m sorry.
Discussion is encouraged, but please refrain from telling me how I “haven’t thought this through” or how “this doesn’t make any sense” or other mean things. Thanks.
- I would take five (5) free throws to double my wage, despite the risk of not getting paid on days where I didn’t complete this strange task
- I would take a 30% decrease in pay in order to sustain a consistent wage
