Skill-Based Pay … Has It Caught On
In 1987 Edward E. Lawler and Gerald E. Ledford’s article “Skill-Based Pay: A Concept That’s Catching On” was published in Management Review. The authors stated, “It is reasonable to assume that skill-based pay will become more and more popular in coming years.”

Drawing on the material in the background reading and your own additional research, prepare a 4- to 5-page paper (not including the cover and reference pages) in which you:
Compare and contrast a skill-based pay structure with a traditional job-based pay structure.
Were the authors correct? Have skill-based pay structures gained in popularity in organizations since 1987? Discuss in detail, providing examples.
If this type of pay structure has not caught on, has another type of pay structure grown in prominence in the private sector during this time? What is commonly found as a pay structure in organizations today? Give actual employer examples (stating employers by name).
Note: In your paper, focus as much as possible on pay structures in the private (business) sector, but feel free to make comparisons to their use in the public sector, too, if you wish. (This is not a requirement, however.)
