30% of Americans Got a Raise in 2018 — Here’s How You Can Get One, Too

GOBankingRates Logo By Gabrielle Olya of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 10: Many Americans got a raise before the end of the year, found a recent GOBankingRates survey.
The survey asked over 2,000 Americans if they received a raise or compensation increase at their current job in 2018 — and 30 percent said they did. Surprisingly, a higher percentage of women than men received a raise. And, younger Generation Xers (those ages 35 to 44) received the largest pay increase among all age groups. In addition to finding out how many Americans received a raise, the survey also asked respondents to explain the reasons behind their pay increases in 2018.
