Amid high inflation and full employment, most workers (62%) are expecting to get a pay raise this year, and two in five (41%) expect that raise to be larger than what they received last year. While the majority (58%) of workers are expecting a pay raise of 5% or less, nearly half (45%) say they would not be happy or satisfied with a pay raise of less than 6% of their salary. These findings are according to an OperationsInc survey of 1,000 U.S. adults employed for wages as of September 7, 2022.

Expectations for increases this year differ widely between men and women. Nearly three in four male employees (73%) expect to get a pay raise at the end of the year, while only half of female workers (49%) expect the same. Men are also far more likely to expect larger raises than last year (47% vs 35% of women), a pay raise of greater than 6% (47% vs 19% of women), and a year-end bonus (60% vs 41% of women).
