New hires entering at a higher salary than you

by on
in Human Resources,Workplace Communication

Q. Our new hires earn far higher salaries than people like me who’ve been here awhile. This seems unfair. They are unproven, and I’m a loyal worker with a great track record. Do you see why I’m frustrated?

A. Sure. But that’s how recruiters lure people they want to hire, especially in this tight labor market. It’s common for newcomers to start at a higher level and earn more than coworkers who have essentially the same jobs. That often creates a morale problem. Don’t expect your loyalty to translate into better pay, apart from any perks that may come from seniority. If all this really annoys you, don’t gnash your teeth. Test the job market. You may nab a much better pay package by job hopping, although you’ll need to adjust to a different employer. And your resentment may recur if your new employer hires people after you and pays them even more than you.
