My rule about rewards:
Reward people for working, they’ll work.
Reward people for doing nothing, they’ll do nothing.
Indeed, it is the foundation of the capitalists system. When you reward people for doing nothing, it short-circuits the system. Worse yet, you will frustrate those who work. It’s so simple that even the dummycrats should understand it. Yet, they don’t. I think it says something about their schools.
