A current staff member was asked about their pay. “It varies based on GI. Sometimes the check is so low we don’t bother to go pick it up and thus donate it back to the org. Our Chief Registrar, John Barber, recently regged a pc for his entire LRH library and we were all were ecstatic because we would get paid.”
Every staff member in the entire org, every post, is being taught Big League Sales Closing Techniques from the Les Dane book and how to reg money out of people.
Now, this is not just an “Ideal Org.” This is the MODEL Ideal Org. It is also a St Hill Size org.
Everything about these “Ideal Orgs” is a lie. Except the fact that expensive buildings have been purchased with money squeezed out of the local field.
This single stat — staff pay — is all the proof anyone needs that this doesnt work. With the price of books, courses and auditing, if there isnt enough money taken in in a week to support the staff then nothing is going right. 50 staff even earning $10/hour for a 40 hour week would only be $20,000 – or about 4 intensives (50 hours) of auditing in a week. Of course there are other costs, but the single largest cost outside of pay should be rent and they don’t have any. So add another $20,000 to cover their expenses and pay “management” and the math is simple. A 50 man org SHOULD be able to pay their staff if they deliver 100 hours a week, or 8 intensives. They are not even paying the staff $20 a week some weeks. And 100 hours a week sure isnt going to clear the planet and they are not even CLOSE.
You can extrapolate a lot from this one fact. And that is why one of the main criteria for a St Hill Size Org is that staff earn a wage that is in excess of what the norm would be on a similar position outside the church.
More proof that the massive, straight up and vertical expansion exists only in the illusory, or perhaps delusory world of Miscavige and his minions.
