[ Sample Essay ] – Writing task 2 Simon

In many countries, a small number of people earn extremely high salaries. Some people believe that this is good for the country, but others think that governments should not allow salaries above a certain level. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Ở nhiều nước, một số ít người có mức lương rất cao. Một số người tin rằng điều này là tốt cho đất nước, nhưng những người khác nghĩ rằng chính phủ không nên cho phép tiền lương trên một mức độ nhất định. Thảo luận cả hai quan điểm này và đưa ra ý kiến của riêng bạn

SAMPLE ESSAY

People have different views about whether governments should introduce a maximum
wage
. While in some ways it may seem reasonable to allow people to earn as much as

companies are willing to pay, I personally believe that employee remuneration should be capped at a certain level.

There are various reasons why it might be considered beneficial to allow people to be paid extremely high salaries. If companies offer  excellent pay packages, they can attract the most talented people in their fields to work for them. For example, technology companies like
Google are able to employ the best programmers because of the huge sums that
they are willing to pay. Furthermore, these wellpaid employees are likely to be highly motivated to work hard and therefore drive their businesses successfully. In theory, this should result in a thriving economy and increased tax revenues, which means that paying high salaries benefits everyone.

However, I agree with those who argue that there should be a maximum wage. By  Introducing a limit on earnings, the pay-gap between bosses and employees can be reduced.
Currently, the difference between normal and top salaries is huge, and this can demotivate workers who feel that the situation is unfair.
With lower executive salaries, it might become feasible to introduce higher minimum wages, and everybody would be better off. One possible consequence of greater equality could be that poverty and crime rates fall because the general population will experience an improved
standard of living

In conclusion, it seems to me that it would be better, on balance, for governments to set a limit
on the wages of the highest earners in society.
