Most Workers Did NOT Get A Raise During The Pandemic

We hear stories about how businesses are raising wages to attract workers, and the media has given the impression that this is a widespread phenomenon. It is NOT. The truth is that most workers (about 75%) did not get a raise in wages, and some even saw a decrease.

And as the chart below shows, those now seeking a job don't expect to make more than they did before the pandemic.

These charts are from the Morning Consult Poll -- done between June 22nd and 25th of a national sample of 1,336 adults, with a 3 point margin of error.
