There are people in life who do the absolute bare minimum. They don’t put forth the effort to do a task properly.  It may be a sign of laziness or a lack of consideration.  I know a man who is a multimillionaire.  When it comes to work, he procrastinates and is lazy.  However, he is almost too detailed oriented.  When it comes to paying his staff, that is where he really shines.  He will pay the bare minimum and not anything that seems reasonable or fair.  Many countries have increased the minimum wage because of so many businesses paying the bare minimum.  There are conglomerates that make millions who have their products made in countries that are desperate for jobs.  The sad part of all this is that they only pay the bare minimum to get the workers.  They never considerate a living wage or what their employees need just to exist.  Many of the sports products are produced in this manner yet they are endorsed by celebrities who  make a tidy sum just for their name.  It seems that if you as a company, the stockholders and board of directors, greedy as you might be for profits, could at least consider the working man or woman and give them a fair and decent wage.  As a young woman, and still today, when I learn about companies that have no consideration for the individuals who are the backbone of their businesses producing the goods that sell for very high rates, I boycott them.  There are products I may really prefer, yet, I choose to utilize my money differently even if it is inconvenient.  In the Good Gus series, everyone always worked above and beyond  all the stories focused on good morals, ethics and manners.  Things that are important for children to learn.  The series is available exclusively on Kindle worldwide.  The books are beginning to increase in popularity, particularly in the San Diego, California area.  If you are handling the finances or health concerns for a family member or a friend, please go beyond the bare minimum.  I hope you will consider reading “Misplaced Trust” which is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
