A new survey by recruitment solution provider Career International has revealed that Chinese women are unhappy about their pay with many planning to change their jobs to improve their situation. The main motivation for changing jobs remains salary, closely followed by career opportunities and benefits.
The survey, which questioned 1,700 people, found that 39% of working women are not happy about their last pay rise. The majority, around 60%, intend to change jobs within the next years. The women surveyed had expected a pay rise of at least 20%, however, only 7% said their expectations were met.
Over a quarter of women (27.4%) were unhappy about this and a further 11.5% were ‘very’ unhappy. Hence the majority of women said they were looking into finding new job opportunities. But this option was closely followed by their intention to ‘work harder’ and ‘confront the boss.’
The survey noted discrepancies between different age groups. Nearly 10% of women born before the 1970s said they would not confront their boss, the highest percentage compared to other age groups. Women born in the early 1980s meanwhile said they would work harder to achieve higher pay while the youngest workers, born between 1986 and 1990, would opt for a different job immediately.
