Are you making as much money as you should be
If you've been pondering this question, you're not alone. A 2006 survey by staffing services company Randstad USA and Harris Interactive found that 39 percent of employees surveyed believe their salary is lower than market rates, up from 28 percent surveyed in 2005. Meanwhile, 50 percent of employers think the salaries they offer are on par with the marketplace, up from 42 percent in 2005.
"It's no surprise that inadequate compensation leads the list of factors that make employees want to leave a current position." said Salary.com's senior vice president, Bill Coleman.
"This disconnect could lead organizations to focus on the wrong issues and as a result, experience high employee turnover and replacement costs." -unknown

Now lets talk solutions. We only have 34 employees and we understand that we are a growning company here at Results, Stuart (LG). We are not asking for a huge raise. Currently we are making $7.50 an hour with a 50 cent bonus if we meet required critera for the pay period. We not only feel we are underpaid, we are backed by many pay ranges from different resources.
We ask for a raise of 75 cents. $8.25 plus a 50 cent raise if we meet the required critera.
Most of the employees here will be gone in an estimated 3 months only because of pay issues. We want to prosper in the company we are in and we will make this a better place to work, higher morale, lower turn-over rate, and self deciplined employess are only a few of the things that will happen as a result of a pay raise.
"We are not getting paid enough to do the amount of work, and the hours that we do." -anonomous
