LOS ANGELES, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to making more money or receiving better benefits from an employer, no sacrifice is too extreme for many workers today.
In a survey by personal finance website GOBankingRates.com, participants were asked six "would you rather" questions asking what they would do to:
- Double their salary
- Get a $100,000 bonus
- Receive unlimited paid time off (PTO)
- Get a free Uber ride to and from work each day
- Always have 4-day workweeks
- Have their employer pay their income taxes
To see the full survey findings, visit:
- 83% of employees would rather be on call 24/7 for their boss than for Donald Trump in order to double their salary
- To receive a $100,000 bonus, employees would rather live without their phone for a year than be roommates with their Human Resources (HR) director
- 56% of Americans would be willing to have a two-hour commute to work each way if it meant receiving unlimited paid time off
- 1 in 3 employees would work two extra hours every day to get a free Uber ride to and from work daily
"While conducted in a playful manner, our survey shows how far some people are willing to go to get a raise and other employee perks. What's important to note, though, is that there might be less drastic ways to get these benefits by negotiating with your employer," said Kristen Bonner, lead researcher on the study.
"If you're considering different job offers, you should look at the entire compensation package offered -- not just the pay. Benefits such as low- or no-cost health insurance, matching employer contributions to a 401(k) account and a flexible work schedule can be worth a lot," Bonner added.
