Should higher salaries be limited?

By Y.Muriel

 

In many enterprises, a big number of employees get paid a low wage while a small number of managers earn a high salary.

Some people believe that the high remuneration package of executives, on average 400 times the salary of a blue-collar worker, reduce significantly the profits of the company. More importantly, this management are paid more than their worth. What’s worse, some fat cats bosses can be entitled to large amounts of remuneration even when they are doing badly. Thus, the government should limit this high salaries.

Another people think that this high working conditions are right because this executives have a high responsibility on his work. Consequently, this employees receive a compensation in a way of remuneration package that may include share options, stock options or performance-related bonus. What’s more, they can have a severance package if they are forced to leave the organization.

And we are passionately attached to them because they find us useful information, they keep us amused and they allows us to communicate with other people, so we don’t stay alone.
