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.

Bring in at least 5 library sources to help strengthen and support your
