Three Percent Pay Raise the ‘New Normal’ for 2013
As the economy picks up, slightly higher pay raises are coming with it.
Many U.S. workers can expect to bring home 3 percent more in 2013 than they did this year, according to forecasts from national compensation surveys.
That’s just over the average median pay raise of 2.7 percent to 2.8 percent in 2012. It’s also more than the 2 percent to 2.5 percent raise most employees saw immediately after the recession, which started in late 2008, according to a 2013 salary report from Bucks Consultants.
Three percent raises are the new normal, says Ravin Jesuthasan, a compensation expert and managing director with management consultant Towers Watson. “I don’t think anyone should expect merit increases to deviate that much going forward, even if the economy does well,” he says.

Im surprised by the response. Not the anger but the response. It seems like only yesterday you were telling me that you were in love with me. etc etc. Oh wait no… that was three (2 days ago depending on how technical you wanna be) days ago. I wonder how you would have responded if I had gone back to you. Probably would have been cubing it or something of the sorts right now. You wouldnt be spitting any venom you can think of at me or directing my attention to your post. I wouldnt be on here responding like Im doing now. One thing Ill give you is that you made me think about maturity a lot. I cant say you taught me anything about actually acting that way but as I think about maturity and contemplate what to say/ what to address/ how to make the truth clean the image you’ve so kindly painted of me, I know that instances like this are the time to demonstrate maturity. Im not angry Im a little bummed and annoyed that I dont get a clarification or rebuttal or witness testimony and stuff like that (fucking maturity) but w.e. Im sorry you feel so bad. To end on a good note I Thought youd like this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7HP2YQBRQQ just for old times sake.
I forgive you.
I think its funny how much attention and effort people to divert to maintaining appearances. cold weather doesnt suit you. how quickly things escalate from im in love with you and i need you back. perversion of reality is the best that can be said for such a facetious performance. Yes yes so very cold. Heres a golden globe.
