Which companies are paying a big salary to their executives?

In this episode of the podcast, host Matt Schlapp and guest Richard Trumka examine whether or not it’s safe to assume that executives are paid well enough to earn decent salaries.

We’ll look at how companies like ExxonMobil and Walmart, two of the world’s largest employers, are incentivizing their top executives to take home large salaries, and how the idea that the average employee should be paid a livable wage may be outdated.

We will also explore the role that a growing number of companies are putting into place to incentivize their top workers to earn more.

We’ll talk about how to incentivise and reward employees who are making more money and how to improve the incentives that corporations have for employees.
