Salary disputes and their eventual resolutions often leave both employers and employees embittered by the entire ordeal. To assess employee reactions to a recently devised salary and fringe benefits plan, the personnel department obtained random samples of 15 employees from each of three divisions in the company: manufacturing, marketing, and research. The personnel staff asked each employee sampled to respond (in confidence) to a series of questions. Several employees refused to cooperate, as reflected in the unequal sample sizes. The data are given here:
