Pay me less for something I'd do anyway: the great de-motivator
An astute reader sent me this link that talks about how you get what you pay for. If something is viewed as 'cheap', then we tend to de-value it. For example, many of us would do science for free if our quality of life were taken care of (rent, food, car, health insurance, annual 2-week beach vacation). But since we're paid crap for what we do, it just makes it all the more obvious that although our labours are supposedly Valued By Society, they must not be, or we'd be paid more.
