Do CEOs deserve their pay?

Cooper, Gary
September 2010
People Management;9/30/2010, p16
A blog entry on the salaries of company executives is presented. The author counters the argument that executives will work overseas if they are not satisfied with their pay because rarely are they pinched by international or global companies. He also opposes the long work hours argument because there is only little difference between the number of senior managers and director-level executives working an average of two or more extra hours a day.
