A new study from CareerBuilder has some interesting findings about US wages and what those earning them think about their wages.

  • Most US workers reported they currently earn their desired salary (23 percent) or are close to it (45 percent).  Nearly one-third (32 percent) said they are not anywhere near their target pay level.
  • Men were nearly twice as likely as women to say that they would need to earn six figures to be successful – 32 percent of men compared to 17 percent of women.  Incidentally, looking at current salary levels, men were more than twice as likely as women to actually earn $100,000 or more.
  • Forty-nine percent of workers reported they have not had a merit increase since 2010.  Twenty-five percent have not had a merit increase since before 2008.
