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.

insights to add, too.
For example, any social worker working with children must be aware of the Children Act 1989. The aim of the act is to simplify the law relating to children, making the law more appropriate by making it child centred. It promotes a “no order principle” in that it is deemed to be in the children’s best interests for matters to be agreed between parties rather than to involve the courts.

All child protection work must be carried out within the context of the Children’s Act 1989 and it is imperative that social workers involved in this field have sound knowledge of the orders it contains to be able to practice more effectively and within the law. The Children Act 1989 has areas which correlate to both ‘public’ and ‘private’ law. Private law covers issues such as divorce or disputes over which parent a child should reside with. Public law sets duties for the local authority to provide services for a child ‘in need’ or ‘at risk’. “The same fundamental principles apply in both private and public law; that is, the welfare of the child is paramount” (workbook 2 p.18). The Children’s Act 1989 seeks to offer greater protection to children. However, there may sometimes be conflict between social work values and the law, for example the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
