H. A man who hired two workers, and he does not have enough money to pay them both, should divide the money between them, even though each will receive less than his due. The employer should not give one of them his entire wages, because if he does so nothing will remain for the other fellow. This is true even if one of them already asked to be paid and his fellow has not yet approached the employer, he must keep half for the other worker who will surely demand his wages later. The exception to this is when he knows that the other worker will not mind that he paid the full wages to the first employee.
This rule is when both workers are financially well-off or both are poor. The rule that applies when one is well-off and the other is poor will be explained below.
