The Average American Hasn’t Had A Raise In 3 Years

While the core mission of Labor Day is to celebrate workers’ contributions to America, according to a new poll, many employees in the U.S. aren’t feeling very appreciated. The survey of 2-thousand U.S. workers finds 46% feel “somewhat recognized” at work, while 8% say they don’t feel recognized at all.

The OnePoll survey also finds:

  • The average American worker hasn’t gotten a raise at their current job in the last three years.
  • The top concerns about the current workforce vary by generations, Gen Z is more concerned about the nationwide worker strikes than the lack of job security (69% compared to 49%).
  • Half of millennials are more worried about salary cuts (53%) than wage gaps (49%) and worker strikes (45%).
  • For Gen X and baby boomers, a lack of job security is the top concern (49%), followed by wage gaps (46%).
  • About two-thirds (73%) of all respondents agree the gender pay gap is still very real.
  • Nearly six in 10 working men (58%) believe their current salary is affected by their gender, compared to 54% of female workers who say the same.
  • While 41% of those polled have previously participated in a labor strike, 47% never have.
  • It’s an even split when it comes to belonging to a union, 43% do and 43% do not.
  • Of those who do, 93% say joining a union was the best work-related decision they’ve ever made.
