Work with Marty Nemko, 3/27/19: Negotiating Compensation in a Time of Low Unemployment


Unemployment is near a 50-year low and wage growth in the most recent year has been, perhaps surprisingly, twice as high for the bottom half of earners as for the top half. That's a favorable environment for workers attempting to negotiate for better pay and benefits. I offer tips on how to prepare practically and psychologically, and, in the actual negotiation, how to stay strong without being unreasonable.In the program's second half, you can call in for a Workover. I do my best to help you address your career  or other work issue.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Thursday from 7 to 8 PM on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.

The programs are archived on NPR.org, iTunes, and in perpetuity on this web page.
