The idea behind ‘acting your wage’ is about setting boundaries and only doing what you are paid to do—however, if your organisation fails to offer the compensation you think you deserve, consider finding another job.


This article by Jack Kelly, writing for Forbes, makes the following points:
  • According to proponents of this work style, there's no reason to work late or on weekends.
  • The problem is the Acting Your Wage mindset is hazardous to your career health.
  • After a while, the 'just enough is enough' attitude can become entrenched.
  • Instead of wasting precious time, move on to a job that would make you happy; work hard and start pursuing your dreams.
