Lots Of Americans Think They Are Underpaid

Unless you are a CEO making high six figures, there’s a good chance you wish your paycheck was a bit bigger each week, and it turns out you are not alone.

A new survey by Robert Half finds that while 49% of professionals think they compensated fairly at their job, 46% think they are underpaid, and only 5% actually think they are overpaid. Overall, workers over the age of 55 are more likely to think they are getting paid fairly (52%), as opposed to those 18 to 25, where only 44% are happy with their salary. And not surprisingly, women are more likely to feel underpaid (49%) than men (44%).
