Employer-Employee Relationships

So often in the world, employers look out for their own best interests--rather than those of their employees--and try to get away with as much as they can (ie, with pay, etc). At the same time--and partly as a result--employees also fight for more; and, sadly, sometimes they have to in order to be compensated fairly. (Hence unions, etc.) The result is that it becomes a fighting match where both sides aim to give up and give out as little as possible. But that isn't biblical. The biblical thing is for employers to look out for their employees, and for employees to look out for their employers (Ephesians 6). To serve - considering others, even in the workplace, better than ourselves. The total opposite. Which is so often how the Kingdom of Heaven is.

Sounds like most employers should follow great Christian examples such as Andrew Barnett and others who look after their employees first and themselves second.
