This paper classifies loyalty to supervisor into five dimensions, namely identification, internalization, dedication, effort and following supervisor. The results show that the 'effort' dimension has a positive effect on wage whereas the 'following supervisor' dimension has a negative effect on wage. Contrary to common perception, loyal subordinates may not get higher wages.
