Poll started 17 April 2018

Pay is big news, with many bigger companies having to report their gender pay gap.

Normally in the consumer world if you!!!8217;re unhappy with something, you should politely complain. We wanted to test whether this applies in the world of work too.

Have you ever asked for a pay rise (disregarding any company-wide annual rises)? Please select the CLOSEST option to your situation.

    My work has just taken the half days I didn't work on my phased return from back surgery off my holiday allowance, so I don't think they would be amenable to talking about pay rises.

    No, everyone is paid on set scales. No pay difference between male and female.

    Yes, many moons ago - I was working as a PCB assembler and a couple months after joining the company I was asked if I would like the job of inspector. I assumed there would be a pay-rise and when it didn't materialise, I asked if I'd be paid more for the extra responsibility.

    The answer was no, so that lunchtime I went to the job centre and handed my notice in a week later.

    I don't have the option to ask for a pay-rise these days.
