It is written: Workers deserve their wages. Payment for work is not an optional gift; it’s an obligation. After all, the whole point of working is to be able to reap the benefits. If even people who don’t work have a right to be fed, how much more those who do? God does not approve when people make other people work for nothing. You must pay your workers without delay, or God will take away everything you have.
It is also written: Doing the work you’ve been told to do is just your duty; it doesn’t make you worthy of any reward. Workers should not even expect to be thanked for their work, much less paid. And if you do get paid anything, you should probably throw it away, because if God sees people getting paid for their services, he might destroy your city.
