If you were an employer, which kind of worker would you prefer to hire: an inexperienced worker at a lower salary or an experienced worker at a higher salary? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
According to my experience, I prefer to hire an experienced worker at a higher salary. I like to use following reasons to explain why I think so.
The first and important reason is that experienced workers themselves mean higher efficiency. I remember the words say, “ Time is money”. An experienced worker just can meet this demand. Such as, many factories now adopt the system that worker’s salary will depend on the number of their qualified products. In such case, although some experienced workers can get very high salaries, considered the potential profit made by those products, I prefer to employ those experienced workers.
Another equally important reason is that experienced workers mean less accident at the workshop. Now people’s insurance consciousness becomes stronger and stronger. If the accidents happened, the employer will pay enormous compensation fee for injured workers. As for the apprentice, the accidents are very easily caused and almost inevitable only because he/she has no enough work experiences. In effect, the factory or company can fully avoid these accidents and unnecessary financial loss through hiring experienced employees.
Moving on to the wider theme, experienced workers are also the pledge of factories and companies’ ability. Now people have gradually realized that experienced worker, that is so-called talents, will be the most important factor for the enterprise’s future prosperity. Such as, many famous companies prefer to provide more attractive welfare than other companies in order to get their ideal talents, and then keep themselves long stable development.
Of course, as far as saving enterprise’s expense is concerned, a lower salary may be a better appeal for some companies or factories. But if all the factors are contemplated, the advantages ofexperienced workers carry more weight than those of inexperienced workers.
There are many other reasons that should be considered, but all in all, I rather hire an experienced employee at a higher salary than employ an inexperienced worker at a lower salary.
