About bonuses for work
In response to this question:
but of course everything is relative, if you want to have nothing, then you can do nothing and leave work with the call. Their whole system is built on bonuses - bonus systems are made with such an account that you do so much and get so much, so in some countries they work 12 hours and do not buzz. Because everyone wants to live no worse than his colleagues - to have a house, a car, to provide for a family, to enter various clubs. All these pleasures are expensive and are taken on credit, which need to be serviced. And on the net "salary" you do not pull it out. Plus, everyone wants to raise, to build a career, you have to recycle.
They therefore call the middle class the basis of society — they get more benefits than the homeless and the rich who live on benefits.
Too much text. :)
I beg you. I do not know your age, perhaps this is your lack of life experience.

The piece-rate payment system itself was invented when it was necessary to increase the productivity of a small part of skilled workers. Somewhere in the 19th century.
Even before the capital production system, it was widespread among artisans. Then they and the former peasants were driven to the factories, where they worked as attachments to the machines for the grubs. Then came a thin layer of workers who could afford to quit and go to another place without problems. It took a new stimulus.
By itself, the application of the method has natural limitations; let us recall the workshops of the left and right gloves. And it can not relate to employees at all. Piece-work payment.
What happened in post-industrialism, which is now in the West and with us? - There are very few workers left. And those are mainly in the service industry. The method of piecework payment does not apply to anyone. Only to modern artisans - private taxi drivers, for example.
Even the mechanic at the service station can not get the piecework. If he starts to work faster, the owner will simply cut his prices or increase the plan. In addition, the markets have a capacity, and most of them are packed to capacity. A Stakhanovist mechanic can hardly find more orders.
And the majority of those employed today are employees. They just perform the function. The performance of a function cannot be objectively assessed quantitatively or qualitatively. Only boolean value - is it executed or not.
How to evaluate the work of a typical office plankton billing? He writes them out. What is his contribution to corporate "success"? - There are no objective criteria.
However, there are some “reward systems”, bonuses, bonuses. But between them and the real work there is no connection.
Examples of darkness. Schools have bonuses depending on the “quality of work”. Ordinary teachers get dick, vice-principal and director - 100 pieces each.
In any office at the head of the most "difficult" work, he invests the most. Then the deputies, then the heads of departments. Clerks who do all the work suck.
Do you think in the West otherwise? - Same.
What is a joint stock company? - This is an office that does not have a host. They sit hired president, the board of directors. They consider the office as their own cash cow, only bring in shareholders income not much lower than the market. They assign themselves huge bonuses. And the clerks? - suck again.
Maybe the company's profit directly depends on the performance of these top managers? - Almost does not depend. Of course, quite stupid to fill up everything will be able to. But mainly, success depends on all sorts of kickbacks, judicial wars, the general state of the economy and the work of just a few people - technical specialists who are carrying progress on themselves. But the head of the marketing department will still get a bonus more.
There is a capitalist paradigm. At a private company, the manager can pay as he wants, he is the boss. Hired directors consider themselves as shareholders. In the state office - the head. All obey the same paradigm of permissiveness.
And the dependence of pay on work is a myth, dust in the eyes, a relic of the past. It is enough to pay no lower than the market so that the clerks do not run away. Instead of one classy and expensive clerk, it is more profitable to hire three cheap ones and sing to them about corporate values.
It will seem to someone that this picture is a very inefficient society in terms of the economy. And the Western economy seems to be effective.
Not. An iphone with a dial on one more every eight months is not an indicator.The economy and society of the West is rotted and stink. Progress almost stopped. How far have we gone to space in 55 years? Are any diseases conquered? Found a replacement for an internal combustion engine? Energy sources? What new has appeared since the 70s, except for financial instruments? “Nothing.”
So, “bonus systems” are a profanation, since the object to which they could be effectively applied has long been dead. The same as the assignment of television to the sphere of culture, "democratic values", humanism, as part of ideology.
