Are You Being Paid What You Are Worth?


Saw this interesting article about “10 Signs It’s Time to Quit Your Job” and it made me smile.

There are a lot of reasons why people leave their jobs and I left mine about half a year ago. Some of the signs are there, but not others like “You don’t like most of your coworkers.”

I’ve been blessed with good co-workers so far. Touch wood.

And looking at the signs, there are some that I think are more important to me than others. Like a bad boss, not making enough, and feeling stressed.

While it is stressful looking for a job, one of the perks of it is that you get to choose your new boss also. Most people forget that the interview is a two way process. Your potential boss choose or may not choose you. You can do the same.

Being paid better is often a reason for people to jump ship and move, while it isn’t the be all and end all, our dear friend Maslow did come up with the hierarchy of needs.

At the bottom is your physical needs of food, water, safety etc. That is where the moolah comes in useful to pay for all of that too.

The thing is that once that need is fulfilled, people look for other things. You can have all the money, but if the job stressed you out, make you feel like a loser, where you don’t learn anything new, you probably won’t stay for long.

So are you paid what you are worth? If you are, you are probably one of the lucky few who are on their way to financial freedom.

If not, what are doing about it?

I believe job environment is one of the key factor to chose a job. One could get enough money by doing a job but it stressed him a lot and give him the feelings of inferiority complex then his personal life could hell. So everybody always should think about the worthiness of the very job
