“How Can I Make as Much Money as What’s-his-name?”

Yahoo Finance - 9 Reasons Why Your Salary Isn't higher

If I had a dollar for each time I have been with a group of teammates or even school mates and the conversion of salaries came up – I’d have a bunch of dollars.  Often the conversation is around, “How can I make more money?”  This is why while cruising through Yahoo Finance today I stopped and clicked on the article, 9 Reasons Why Your Salary Isn’t Higher.

Come on, who doesn’t want to why they do not make more money.  If you know why, then you can possibly change things that are keeping your paychecks short.  Unfortunately this article doesn’t exactly leave very many things for you to easily change. 

Who would have thought that there were so many strange factors that played into your salary.  Check out some of the things that can impact how much money you make:

·         How tall you are

·         Right or left handed

·         Whether you are a social drinker

·         Married or single

·         Sexual orientation

Some of these crazy things can be the difference between you making more money than a colleague, or a colleague making more money than you.  So make sure to read the article and find out which of those things you can change and which ones you may just be stuck with.

  1. Nice article. Another fantastic site is http://www.glassdoor.com/index.htm. While it doesn’t tell you why you make less, it will let you compare salaries and read reviews of companies from actual employees.
