It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages.
~ Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 - April 07, 1947)
And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders; / And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.
