Pay whin­ing is a science

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

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.
