Cheap labor should be illegal corporations cant want to be profitable while paying low wages to its workers who are ultimately also consumers who help them get to profitable. Im coming up on 21 years in my industry. Everything i buy is directly related to what we produce.

This is a great post. You should always know your worth and what you bring to the table. What comes next is the hard part. How do you leverage this information on your current role? Do you go to a new company to get the pay you deserve? Once you know your worth think about your next steps.

I wish you could just enter your skills/responsibility and see what you are worth. My skills do not fall into a new box like "accountant" or "software programmer" and it's been impossible to find an accurate salary tool.

Have you considered having conversations with those who do similar work or have the same title to identify a pay range?

There are few people that really do what I do, I have grown with my company to do so many different things that are covered in large companies by specialists. I have yet to find a job that has the unique responsibilities I have.

If you’re doing multiple things - the question then becomes are you doing beyond what you were hired to do? If so, are you satisfied with your compensation? If not, a conversation definitely needs to take place.

Keep in mind that when you are under-paid, you are being cheated 3 times: 1) Your monthly/annual salary, hence your ability to investment/save. 2) The matching from your company. 3) Your SSI investment Also -- during this turbulent time, some companies may resort to across-the-board cuts to salaries to attempt to save positions for when we 'come out the other side'. These cuts are typically a higher % for management than other staff. Two things to keep in mind: 1) Be clear up-front about when your pay will be reinstated. 2) Watch out for your supervisors/c-level execs to add responsibilities to your plate rather than your peers (likely because they know you will get it done) but not add compensation or promotion. I'm not advocating being inflexible or not being a team player, just self-advocate and do it with facts and reason.

This is a great post. Thank you for sharing. I know for myself, I am checking sites similar to these 2 to 3 times a year to make sure I am on par (if not above) ;)

Great post! Always know your value! It's interesting, but if you look at salary.com vs. payscale, you'd expect to find a lot of the numbers to be similar. I tend to find the Payscale is more accurate as a representation of the market for those of us who don't live on a coast. Anyone else have that view?

Thank you for posting this. Such a good reminder to really know the value you bring to the marketplace. I grew up and spent much of my adult years believing that I should only be focusing on improving my shortcomings... if I didn't do that, I wouldn't succeed. It wasn't until I was listening to a Key Note Speaker, at a conference, express the value of spending time on your strengths, and improving those, to help you excel, and then of course, researching your worth/value. Again - great post. Thank you!

I love that Hannah! Awareness of the weaknesses doesn’t mandate improving them but when you focus on your strengths; your genius - that’s where the magic is!!
