John Arnold, a 35-year-old parts auditor at Caterpillar's distribution facility in Morton, Illinois, says some of his
coworkers are on food stamps. Arnold has worked for Caterpillar since 1999. More than 10 years later, he's
making $15.66 an hour.
To succeed today, does an employer have to worry about motivation? In recent years, Caterpillar, a Wall Street
darling and mainstay of American manufacturing, has rolled back traditional extrinsic motivators.
? Item: Caterpillar laid off 30,000 workers in 2009.
? Item: By the second quarter of 2012, Cat's profit had jumped 67 percent from the previous year. (Net

share in 2012 2Q.)
