Pay whining is a science
A SIGNIFICANT proportion of Australia’s scientists are unhappy with their pay despite average increases in the sector above inflation and wages growth over the past year.
More than one-third of scientists surveyed for the 2017 Professional Scientists Employment and Remuneration Report were dissatisfied with their pay levels.
About 45 per cent were happy with their salary.
About two in five said their remuneration was falling behind market rates and didn’t reflect the level of responsibility of their day-to-day work.
