Bookmark These: Are you paid enough?
http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | (MCT)
Are you paid enough? It's hard to know without examining what people in your type of job are getting. These sites help with publicly available data on salaries, and tips for getting more.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes prevailing wages for hundreds of job categories and industries, and by levels of experience, as well as by regions, states, and metropolitan areas. The site is useful not only for workers, but also for employers looking to compare what their own workers are paid or to offer competitive wages for their area. A clickable U.S. map allows quick access to details from the regularly updated National Compensation Survey.
YOU MAKE HOW MUCH?
This article at Bankrate.com names, in addition to a compendium of online sources for a "cyber salary search," a number of off-line ways to check out the going pay for any given job, including — gasp — asking friends and neighbors. It suggests, "Just ask them what they think a person should expect as an average salary for someone with your level of experience. You're not asking them what they make, but just asking for a range."
At this site, you can name a job title, type in your ZIP code, and see a bell curve of the salaries being offered for that job in your chosen field and geographic area. Other refinements for your experience and education levels get more specific. And then you can see specific job offerings. There are corresponding services for employers. The company behind the site sells access to its human resources software tools.
Another "salary calculator" is this one at PayScale.com, which takes into account your level of experience, the type and size of organization you want to work in, and your special skills.
The National Women's Law Center, citing a $10,622 gap between the median yearly earnings of men and women, advocates for laws aimed at closing that gap.
