Is Money the Primary Motivating Factor?
I think money remains the primary motivating factor of employees...
Here in Uganda, the oldest national university Makerere has been closed due to striking lecturers over poor pay. They don't complain about harassment or poor working environment. And even if their counterparts in private universities are paid 10 times less than them, they don't complain of poor pay!
Today on 5 September 2011, all teachers in public primary schools have threatened not to teach the first term due to poor pay. Some of their colleagues teach in private schools on a voluntary basis because recruitment has reached a ceiling.
This prompts me to think that what motivates employees is money. Other factors are minor and secondary.
