It may change as you take on more life responsibilities or aspire to bigger things, but you likely have a target number in your head that you'd like to be earning. If you're not making that amount yet, though, you're in good company. According to a new CareerBuilder survey, 65 percent of full-time U.S. workers say they don't currently earn their desired salary; 35 percent do. Perhaps not surprisingly, a majority of workers who fall into the $75,000-$100,000 income range say they earn their desired salary.
But that number doesn't reflect everybody's desired level of success, and it certainly doesn't begin to answer the questions about how people reach their level of success or the effect employer transparency on salary figures can have. However, the survey did find answers to those questions.
