How To Find Out If You’re Being Underpaid

At some point while growing up, we’ve all been told to avoid comparing yourself to others because everyone is different. While this is true, it doesn’t apply when it comes to your salary.

This is one of the only times I will give you a pass to look at your peers and see if you are on their level. It’s important to compare what you’re getting paid in order to see if you match.

That’s not to say that there are varying degrees pay due to years of experience, education obtained, etc. What I’m saying is, if you are among others doing the same work as you and you feel as though you are on the lower end of the pay scale by comparison, then you have the right to research your worth.

This week, I will be giving you three important steps to put to the test. You owe it to yourself to get what you deserve. No one wants to work for free or put in the hard work only to get paid the minimum.

You have the right to want to be compensated on the same level as others working the same position, so make sure to watch this video all the way to the end. There is too much great information to miss just one minute!
