OR to keep him, you have to cut other productive workers and let your competitor have them.

bye bye employee and you cant do a thing about it, even if you wanted to.

sounds fair doesnt it ... note sarcasm.

Ok, flip that this way. Your favorite employer just got a call from a headhunter offering him a job doing the same thing for twice the money for a company in a bigger city, that can pay twice as much, they make the same call to every single one of your employees, your employees demand raises that exceed your revenue, what do you do?

Remember the NHLPA calls anything that ties revenue to salaries a "salary cap"
