Double Demotivation is the theory that involves pay and motivation theory, first postulated by Carr and MacLachlan.

The double demotivation hypothesises that pay discrepancies decrease work motivation among both lower and higher paid individuals who essentially perform the same task. Compared with equitably paid workers, employees who felt they were being under- or overpaid reported lower job satisfaction and greater readiness to change jobs. [1] [2] [3]
