Posted by admin on Saturday, April 27, 2019

Samuel F.B. Morse Money Quote saying that paying well attracts quality employees to become telegraph operators who would strive to earn their pay well. Samuel F.B. Morse said:
 
pay operators well and make their situation so agreeable that intelligent men and men of character will seek the place and dread to lose it Quote
 

“We must raise the salaries of our operators or they will all be taken from us, that is, all that are good for anything. You will recollect that, at the first meeting of the Board of Directors, I took the ground that ‘it was our policy to make the office of operator desirable, to pay operators well and make their situation so agreeable that intelligent men and men of character will seek the place and dread to lose it.’ I still think so, and, depend upon it, it is the soundest economy to act on this principle” — Samuel F.B. Morse

 
Born April 27, 1791 – Died April 2, 1872 – Contributed to Morse Code and the Telegraph
