What percent of American workers have asked for a raise at their current employer?

Answer: 37 Percent


Payscale, a salary and benefits website, recently, surveyed over 160,060 workers to find out who’s asking for a raise, who receives a raise when they ask, why people don’t ask, and how people feel about their workplaces when they’re denied a raise. According to the survey only 37 out of every 100 people asks for a raise. Here are some other takeaways from the survey:

– West Coast workers are the most likely to ask for a raise.

– Midwest Workers are the least likely to ask for a raise

– If you ask for a raise, the odds you get one are high. Seventy percent of employees who have asked for a raise received one. Thirty-nine percent of those who asked for a raise received the amount they asked for. Another 31 percent got a raise that is less than the amount they requested.
