The expansion of global business by firms based in both the United States and other countries has raised
executive compensation issues. Senior executives in the United States continue to earn higher salaries than
similar executives in other countries.
In the United States, critics of executive pay levels point out that many U.S. corporate CEOs have a ratio value
of more than 350 times that of the average workers in their firms, while in Britain the ratio is 22, in Canada it is
20, and in Japan it is 11.
After doing some research on global executive pay levels, write a persuasive paper explaining why you are for
or against U.S. executives making significantly more than their employees.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Your paper should be 2-3 pages (not counting the cover sheet and references). You are expected to deal with
these issues in an integrated fashion, rather than treating them as a series of individual questions to be
answered one by one. Bring in at least one library source and don’t forget to return to the Bluen book for
insights to add, too.
