The budget experts believe the answer to getting an increase is simply to “change jobs”.

“Those who changed roles (in 2023) had a 1.6 per cent greater salary increase than those who stayed in the same job, which is a lot,” Al said in a now-viral video.

But the women have cautioned, when negotiating anything to do with money in the workplace, to never rely on a verbal offer.

They say the “biggest life lesson” when navigating the job market is to ensure “you get every single job offer, and salary package in writing”, saying that ”if it is not in writing, it doesn’t exist”.

The girls’ video has racked up more than 29,000 views and people in the comments were quick to agree.

“Confirming this,” said one.

“I agree, left a job this year and my salary doubled!” added another.

“Can confirm I did this and now I earn extra $7 an hour to work less hours in a fortnight,” said a third.

According to SEEK, 47 per cent of Australian workers “feel nervous or anxious when it comes to asking for a pay rise”.

The career website suggests “practising the conversation” before you approach your employer.

If you’re wanting to speak to your employer about a pay rise, SEEK suggested, start the conversation by, “talking about positives of your role and what you’re proud of”.

Lastly, their experts recommend “talking about your achievements and then get to the point”.
