I saw in the documentation that raising salaries in a corporation increases the production quality. Does this pay for itself in profitable corporations usually?

If the product itself pays yes, if the product loses money no.

In general there are several benefits to higher salaries.

For a country, higher salaries increases welfare index.

Along with increased production giving you more product to sell. The problem is if you get to far out from government salaries that can cause unrest. From what I've noticed that's around twice the government salaries, although there could be issues I've not noticed at lower ratios.

The higher your government salaries are, the more your military, schools, etc. cost you however, the more money your population makes, the more they pay in income taxes etc. so long term I see no issue.

For a CEO if your salaries are slightly higher than everyone else in whatever country the corp is in, you are effected last by worker shortages. (workers stay with you and quit lower paying jobs first)

While I'm sure there are others that can give you easier and more detailed answer, yes within reason higher salaries pay for themselves.

Thanks Yankee, that helps a lot understanding the different ways it improves things. United I actually saw one of your corporations had a really high salary and that's what made me post this :)
