Friday Logic? Question

You want to hire a temporary employee for one month.

You offer him reasonable wages, but the employee suggests an alternative.

For the first day of work, he will be paid a penny.
For the second day,two pennies.
For the third day, four pennies.

The salary for each subsequent day will be double the previous days,
until the one month term is over.

Ignoring the legalities of such a situation,
would it be a good idea to accept the potential employee’s proposal :?: :?:

If yes, why :?:

If no, again Why :?:
