Today’s hot topic is the post in this forum about the mods being paid 30k per month (3125$ each), tax-free, clean money.
It’s absolutely required for the project to pay its mods, but let’s be honest: it’s too much.
I bet 95% of the people here, having lost a significant amount of money, earn half of that salary in a month.
There’s a problem with communication and a clear detachment from reality.
I work as head of hr for a multinational company in real life. Not very, very big, but still bring home more than 10m$ per year.
I’m used to finding the right resources, putting them in the right spot, give them the environment to succeed.
I know how to talk to them and how to manage them. Most of all, I know what the right retribution is and how to discuss this with them.
I propose to hire a Head of HR (it could be me or not) for 1500$ per month.
His/Her role will be to discuss their duties, tasks, salaries, timesheets, etc.
If mods jump out of the boat because they want 3k per month, the Head of HR has to find new ones.
In my ideal world, Wonderland will have ten mods connected 6 hours per day, in more timezones, at 1500$ each per month.
