Two-Tier Compensation Structures: Their Impacts on Unions, Employers, and Employees


  • James E. Martin

    (Wayne State University)


Martin conducted a study at a large company where its various wage tier systems allowed assessment of the long-term impact of tiers. Part of this study included the development of a survey designed to explore eight research questions related to tiers and to test five hypotheses of low-tier v. high-tier employees.
