KARACHI:


Despite high levels of dissatisfaction with their current compensation levels, most Pakistani urban professionals appear to think that their lives are better than their peers and a plurality remained optimistic about economic growth in the country, according to a recent Rozee.pk/Yougov poll.

While only 6% of the respondents to the survey said they were highly satisfied with their compensation packages, over 45% felt that they were better off than most of their peer group.

Mark | 9 years ago | Reply To be fair, pretty much the majority of the people in the world who have jobs usually claim they're underpaid. Regardless of their job and even if everyone around them actually believes they're overpaid.
