Do not take advantage of a hired worker who is poor and needy, whether that worker is a fellow Israelite or a foreigner residing in one of your towns. Pay them their wages each day before sunset, because they are poor and are counting on it. Otherwise they may cry to the Lord against you, and you will be guilty of sin. Deuteronomy 24:14-15 New International Version
It is my opinion this is the best method of giving and receiving wages.
When teaching in China there was many times the school would cheat me out of wages or indeed dismiss
me just so they do not have to pay any wages at all. Of course you, as a foreigner have no option but to accept it.
There were many times tree planting companies in Canada cheated us out of wages. The same happened with working the pipelines.
Do not believe they get away with it however. I have seen most of them ten years later in severe poverty and have lost everything.
Where as, if we are paid at the end of the day instead of the week or month there is much less chance of being cheated.
And, if you are cheated out of your wages would it not be better to be cheated out of a days wages instead of a weeks or months?
Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah (God is present) bless me with wisdom to seek out honest contractors to provide my services to and to warn me to the filthy thieves that are lurking out there to steal my hard earned wages.I humbly request this in the name of He who honestly paid the price for entrance into Your honest family Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
