(WIAT) — Have you ever asked your employer for a raise?
Most of us dread cleaning the house, going to the dentist or being audited.
But according to a new study, many Americans prefer those tasks over asking their boss for a raise.
In a new survey from Robert Half, 89 percent of Americans think they deserve a raise, but only 54 percent plan to ask for one. 32 percent said they would rather clean their house, 7 percent said they would actually prefer a root canal.
Robert Half’s Billie Watkins said workers should always go in with a strategy
“I feel like I need a raise and this is why. Here is what I have done for the company. If it simultaneously connects with your performance evaluation, better for you,” said Watkins.
Watkins added if your bosses said no to a raise, they might say yes to better hours or more vacation time. She said showing confidence is the key.
