During 1990s, corporations in United States appeared to have been adept at the creation of shareholder value. There is then a shift in the strategic orientation in the allocation of resources and a change from ‘retain and reinvest’ to ‘downsize and distribute’ (Lazonick and O’Sullivan, 2000). The managers emphasises on cutting the labour force employed in order to increase the return on equity. Shareholder value shifted in the measure of success from productive and market success criterion to a combination of aggressive stock market capitalism which then increases firms to deliver financial results, becoming main measure of corporate success. Examples: BT in 1980s, GE in 1990s and BA in 2008/2009 (De Moraes,

Reading skills are all about aspects of comprehension and fluency. For the case of fluency, it involves a student’s ability to decode words accurately and with the right expression and pacing. Such skills impact each other, as the ability of a student to decode words will be influenced directly by their familiarity with letter sounds. There are several decoding skills such as reading by analogy, phonetic, morphemic, and syllabic analysis that a good reader employs when decoding text. One aspect of fluency that also aids comprehension is reading with ideal expression since the reader shows an understanding of tension or dialogue in a text (Byrd, 2015).

Their paychecks reflect a simple increase of only ten dollars per week, after consumer inflation has been taken into account.
