The original form of the proverb says, "when the labourer is praised, his cutlass begins to cut more keenly".And I guess the meaning is clear from my above modern rendition of it. Bad employers use people; good employers work with people. When you use people, you don't care about their well being, all you care about is what you want from them or what you can get from them.
