Is Your Raise Keeping Up With Inflation?
In the three years from December 2020–December 2023, prices in the U.S. increased at a blistering 5.60% per year. Has your raise kept pace?
A good rule of thumb is that your salary should increase by inflation plus 1-3% for seniority each year. So if inflation is 6%, you'd expect a raise of 7–9%, unless you got promoted. Then it would be even higher.
With unemployment near record lows, why not ask for a higher raise this year?
