Module 3 – SLP
Global Executive Pay Levels
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 short (2-3 pages, not including the cover sheet,

questions to be answered one by one and left at that.
You will be particularly assessed on:
- Your completion of all the steps in the exercise.
- Your ability to synthesize information and present a concise and meaningful paper.
- The clarity and quality of your writing.
SLP Assignment Expectations (Structure)
