Question
Succeed at Work

“How do I know if what I'm getting paid is fair?”

Answer

Of course not every employer pays the same wage for the same job, but here are a few tips that will help you find out what you can expect.

  • Look at wage and salary information.
  • Find job postings to see what other companies are paying for the same job.
  • Ask other people you know, especially those working in the same job.
  • Go to your professional association or union to see if they have salary information for comparable jobs.
