Commission paid at the end of the term based on what they accomplished?
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
No one would want the job if that were the case. But you would save a ton of money on salaries, actually all the money
I like it. Most people are scared to actually get compensated on there production. I'm not saying all but people prefer to go to a job for 8 hrs and have a set pay regardless of production. I started commission only about 4 years ago and was nervous at first but it has paid off
Congressman should make 25K for every % point the nation's economy increases that year. President gets 75K maybe. I am in the camp that says being a leader is a calling, not a career advancement. If they only make 35K one year then tough titties, we all did poorly. They'd get really interested in the economy then.
You guys are reading my mind
Define public servants
While commission based on accomplishment would be a difficult measure (What do you consider an "accomplishment"? What behavior are you incentivizing as a result?), I do agree with everyone who says that the public service should be a calling, not a way to get rich.
The problem isn't so much compensation as term limits. Most public servants are paid significantly less than their counterparts in the private sector.
My bad, elected officials. Mayors, congressmen, senators, etc.
