2 very good qualities everyone looks for in employees.

I'd prefer people who are smart and ones who aren't cheap. Paying somebody a low wage, is a guarantee of low productivity, bad feeling and a whole host of other negative attitudes.

Paying a reasonable rate, is the only way to do it. Anybody willing to settle for less, is probably not worth employing - as they can't be that smart.

Interesting. Over here in the UK, we could get into trouble for that kind of discrimination. You give the job to the best suited candidate, regardless of race or colour.

That you can get what you want or you can just get old,
Your're going to kick off before you even get halfway through.
When will you realise... Vienna waits for you?
