Issue of Pay Rises in England
The issue of pay rises in the workplace is rarely far from the news, or our collective minds. From the lop-sided male v female BBC pay scale, to the wild increases of city-slickers at a time of recession, pay rises are quite rightly a divisive subject.
Financial experts Money Guru were keen to gauge the views of the British workforce and how they felt the pay rise debate really played out at ground level.
- Men are three times more likely to have flirted with their boss for a pay rise
- Both sexes prefer to ask a boss of their own gender for a rise
- Over 50% of people believe upper classes have an advantage when it comes to pay rises
- 40% don’t believe performance is the main key to a pay rise
The survey of 1500 tax-paying British adults looks at how the public judges the pay rise issue, away from the stories dominating the newspaper headlines.
