For the first time since early January, working Americans think what they earn is more likely to stay the same over the next year rather than go up.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 40 percent of employed adults think they will be earning more money a year from now than they are making today. That’s in line with regular tracking since March and up from the low to mid-30s common to surveys since July 2009. But 46 percent now believe their earnings will be about the same in a year’s time. That’s the highest finding since July of last year and more in line with earlier surveying.

The survey of 593 Employed Adults was conducted on September 2-3, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
