A new survey shows many employers are planning to increase salaries next year. The poll, conducted by consulting firm Mercer, questioned more than 15,000 mid-size to large employers. 98 percent said they planned to boost pay in 2013.
On average, salaries are expected to increase by nearly three percent. But the raises won't be across the board. Mercer says executive-level employees and top performers will likely benefit the most.
And the expected pay raises will vary depending on the industry. For instance, workers at oil and gas companies are expected to see higher raises than people working in education and health care.
