Three percent of workers admitted that they think they are overpaid for the work they do.

Lower-paid workers were more likely to say that they are underpaid. Among those who earn less than $75,000, 62 percent of respondents said they are underpaid, compared with 38 percent of workers who earn $75,000 or more.

Women (55 percent) were more likely than men (47 percent) to say they are underpaid for the work they do.
