>Does employee happiness not factor in?

Only when that happiness leads to productivity. It's called "work," after all, you weren't hired to have fun all day.

Programmers that are only doing the job because these days it pays, not because they love what they do, are shit programmers.

And employers who would rather their programmers work for love than money are shit employers.
