Hungry snail!

When employers complain about employees leaving after being trained...

I know why, even if they don't: they take you on without skills, and say "You're worth $20k!"

They train you up over 6 months, so they're getting the cream of your abilities while paying rock-bottom unskilled wages.

Suddenly, you realise the market rate for your job, with the skills you have, is $35k...

How's that make you feel? Your company is paying you $15k a year LESS because they trained you. Hell, it'd be paid back in 6 months...

But do you get a raise "In recognition of your new skills!" - bollocks, you do not.

So the employee realises they can get a damn high pay increase and leave, because the original employer wants to get away with paying unskilled wages for ever......

This is the reason people leave when they've been trained.
