According to a new survey of American workers, the younger you are, the more likely you are to think this about your salary.


That it’s too low


48{a18c87a46add82dbee5e4fa4c0cab30d5f6e3bbf78c3f52c3c01413f7f531a16} of 18-34 year olds say they are underpaid at their job. However, 46{a18c87a46add82dbee5e4fa4c0cab30d5f6e3bbf78c3f52c3c01413f7f531a16} of people over the age of 35 feel the same way. Not that much less. The majority of people think they are paid fairly with 8{a18c87a46add82dbee5e4fa4c0cab30d5f6e3bbf78c3f52c3c01413f7f531a16} of younger people actually saying they are overpaid! No surprise here but, the less money you make, the more likely you are to feel underpaid and women and people with only a high school education are more likely to say they are underpaid. I have always kind of fallen on the side of feeling underpaid at all of my jobs but I would have to admit that it’s probably pretty fair pay. Especially for what I do! How do you feel about your salary.
