Frederick Winslow Taylor’s oeuvre: an analysis of wages This paper analyses and explains Frederick Winslow Taylor’s perspective on wages, as it is presented in his main literary works: Shop management (1903) and Principles of scientific management (1911). The first part presents the main economic aspects that characterized his lifetime, which undoubtedly influenced his literary works. The second part analyses F. W. Taylor’s two main books in which the author’s perspective about wages is discussed. The paper concludes with a critical view of F. W. Taylor’s view on wages.
