Scenario: "Dude, it's all about how you pay them!" If you wanted to make Sally B. happy, would you:
  • a) promote her
  • b) give her more money

Yet, when Oswald looked at an employee's worker's position in a company, he found a strong link with job satisfaction. Rank influenced how proud they were with their professional achievements. Rank also increased happiness 50 to 60 percent when compared with bigger paychecks.

"You've been promoted, badass."
