Some workers say they feel underpaid, even as employers hike wages

Nearly half of U.S. workers in a survey conducted between March and April by HR consulting firm Robert Half said they were earning less than they thought they deserved, and 31% said they would consider quitting their jobs by the end of 2021 if they did not receive a raise.

Younger workers, specifically members of Gen Z, as well as women were most likely to say they felt underpaid, Robert Half said. When examining respondents by location, cities in the U.S. South made up seven of the top 10 areas by percentage of workers who felt underpaid, with Charlotte, North Carolina, ranking first at 62%.
