ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report released by advisory firm PricewaterhouseCoopers which noted that it has become common practice for executive pay increases to be in line with the rest of the workforce. Topics discussed include an international trend towards more "Say on Pay" for shareholders with major pressure placed on reward systems and concerns over the trend of micro-level interference by Government in executive pay and behaviour of local companies.
