    CARACAS (Reuters) - A Venezuelan security firm is looking to attract personnel with a "motivational" bonus of 144 eggs for good presentation and time-keeping - alongside a $10 per month salary.
    Aware of food scarcities and soaring prices in the crisis-hit economy, Atlas Security, in western Zulia state, is seeking security guards on a 2 million bolivar monthly salary - $10 at the black market rate - plus a "motivational" bonus of eggs.
    To qualify for the weekly box of 36 eggs, worth around $2 at the black market rate, staff have to arrive on time, not miss shifts and dress smartly.
    "Many weren't complying with these basic rules, that's why we've done this," human resources manager Cindy Fuenmayor told Reuters. "We've had lots of applications since we published the ad. We're being innovative. It's a good incentive."
    Food and transport bonuses have become crucial for Venezuelan workers. The currency has collapsed to such an extent that the minimum wage is currently around $1 per month at the black market rate.
    Venezuela is also undergoing hyperinflation, and has one of the world's highest murder rates - with security guards often victims of crime

    The opportunities are not all they're cracked up to be.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    a generous offer but I would hold out for 156 eggs (a baker's dozen dozen)
