This article focuses on a survey concerning the salaries of top managers in various industries in Great Britain as of November 1979. The survey shows that remuneration for the highest-paid directors increased broadly in line with average earnings, but that the number of staff earning in excess of £10,000 has risen spectacularly in the past year from 9,312 to 17,676, a jump of 90 percent. The survey also found that there were wide differences in cash rewards in broadly similar jobs. Perhaps the most fascinating information in the survey is comparable salaries in similar industries.
