Answer: E
Explanation: E) Compensation includes both current and future wages. One common tool for securing wage increases is a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA). Most COLA clauses tie future raises to the Consumer Price Index (CPI), a government statistic that reflects changes in consumer purchasing power. Almost half of all labor contracts today include COLA clauses.
