Strategic CSR - Welcome back!

Welcome back to the Strategic CSR Newsletter!
The first Newsletter for the Fall semester is below.
As always, your comments and ideas are welcome.
In particular as people transition to the third edition of the book, if anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me at any point.

The article in the url below puts the concept of a “fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay” into context. It certainly qualifies as containing the most attention grabbing opening paragraph I have read in a while:
“America's highest-paid CEO last year, John Hammergren of McKesson Corp., received compensation of over $131 million. That is the equivalent of about $63,000 per hour, or $10,000 more than the annual median household income in the United States. Meanwhile, some of this country's lowest-paid workers—those on minimum wage—made just $15,080 annually at $7.25 per hour. Mr. Hammergren had surpassed that amount by 9:15 a.m. on his first workday of the year.”
Take care
