Did you get your pay raise yet?

Forty-three percent of economists surveyed by the National Association for Business Economics (NABE) said their firms have increased wages in the last three months. That's up from last year, when only 19% of economists were reporting wage gains.

Even if wages aren't going up at your workplace, the tide of cutting wages might be done. No one reported pay cuts at their firm, while 57% said wages were flat.
