HomeProfessional Relationship QuestionsShould I confront my boss about my pay?
Rila Thomas Staff asked 5 months ago
I've been working at my job for 3 months and I notice that they keep delaying my salary. They have different kinds of excuses going on and my superiors are not doing anything about it. My pay is also way below the industry average even though I have more experience than some of my colleagues. I'm thinking about confronting my boss about this, but I don't want to make things awkward at work. What should I do?

It's completely normal to feel frustrated in this situation. You've been working hard and you're not getting paid what you deserve. However, before you confront your boss, it's important to make sure you have all the facts. Do some research and find out what the industry average salary is for your position. Once you have a solid understanding of what you should be making, schedule a meeting with your boss to discuss your concerns. Be professional and explain why you think you deserve a raise. If they're not willing to budge, then you might have to start looking for a new job.
