NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Workers who say they will or may look for a new job in the next six months are ready to walk even though they expect larger raises and bonuses this year. These findings are according to an OperationsInc survey of 1,000 U.S. adults employed for wages as of September 7, 2022.
Among jobseekers, two in five (42%) expect to receive at least a 6% pay raise from their current employer this year compared to only one in four (27%) non-jobseekers who expect the same.
