When looking for a new job, how important is a wage? Most people would like to pick a job based on the satisfaction it gives them, something that they would enjoy to do, but unfortunately money is often the deciding factor.

A decent wage can add to job satisfaction as you may then feel that the job you are doing is being appreciated and that you are getting paid as you should do.  If you are working in a job that is low paid and you believe that you are giving your company a good level of service during your employment then you could ask for a rise in your salary. When asking for a wage rise, be sure to have a reason why you think that you deserve a rise, for example because you have accrued new business, you regularly work extra time without asking for overtime etc.
