Why? I have worked for several companies (and the military) where people were paid according to the position they occupied as opposed to the results they achieved. All these had one thing in common. Everybody hated it. I've never understood why some people who did average to below average work were entitled to the same money as the people who did good work, just because their title/rank was the same. IMO, this stifles initiative.
If you want an idea of the "starting pay" for unskilled entry level labor, the best way is to call the local temp service and find out what they pay. You can make adjustments to that as necessary to attract the type of people you want.
