The article focuses on issues involving salary increases in the U.S. Recent forecasts of salary increases that employers plan for 2009 have been mostly around 3.5 percent to four percent, about even with the rates of pay raises awarded for 2008. Even though projected salary increases for many employees may fall short of increases in the overall cost of living, the positive message for many is that at least their increase rates will not slip much if at all below in 2008.
