Jesus how are so many people answering positive to this?
If this were the case then only you aren't going to attract anyone with any qualifications.
Most people that work for non-profits have a degree. That's who employ social workers.
You also have researchers, financial specialists and upper management directors who are needed for non-profits to exist.

This question reads like someone completely detached from society...

Isn't it fair that if the company isn't going to make a profit, the employees shouldn't either?

Tell that to Amazon warehouse employees.

Don't they get paid something like $15/hour now? Doesn't seem too unreasonable for that sort of position...

kind of depends on where you live. $15 an hour isn't close to cutting it in CA, especially the bay area and LA.

i've heard stories about people up in san jose renting out spots in a living room for $1200+ a month and average looking homes being over $2-3 million.

Don’t non profits operate off of government grants and subsidies? Or taxpayers money in other words?

Not always. Private college/university would be an example.

I don't know how that amount would be decided.

My point was that employee pay is not tied to company profits, as you mentioned previously.

Employees are a resource like any other. Resources that are harder to come by are worth more. Employees that have a less common skillset are therefore paid more. Standard market principle.

I don't disagree.
