The concept of a master of "high station" and a servant of "low station" has been replaced by the concept of an employer hiring, on the basis of mutual free will, an employee on the basis of mutual voluntarism. The employee performs work under the employer's direction in exchange for money. Therefore, besides money, what the employer owes to the employee are clear standards and directions. I suggest changing this verse to "In dealing with employees, standards and directions must be clear."
- Feng Xin-ming
Also, the relationship-defined obligations of employer to employee demand that the employer deals with the employee on the basis of trustworthiness, honesty and integrity, and that includes paying on time and according to the original agreement. So the next verse should be: "Pay on time, follow the agreement."
