L.A.-based company pays three employees in its Russian venture to stand in lines.
How's this for a job? Nantucket Corp., a Los Angeles based software company, has on the payroll of its Russian venture three people who spend five hours each day doing nothing but waiting in lines. It seems that's the only way the company can get the food it needs to offer its hottest perk: a company-sponsored lunch for workers. My question is, how do you motivate someone whose job description calls for getting paid just to stand around?
