    Does a high wage employee bring more value to a company than multiple low wage employees?

    It all depends on your business. If you are doing tool room, prototype, or short runs, you better have a high percentage of rock stars. Long run production shop or an OEM can usually get away with a high percentage of bums.

    Rehiring an employee who quit?
