Unless you are a CEO making high six figures, there’s a good chance you wish your paycheck was a bit bigger each week, and it turns out you are not alone.

A new survey by Robert Half finds that while 49% of professionals think they compensated fairly at their job, 46% think they are underpaid, and only 5% actually think they are overpaid. Overall, workers over the age of 55 are more likely to think they are getting paid fairly (52%), as opposed to those 18 to 25, where only 44% are happy with their salary. And not surprisingly, women are more likely to feel underpaid (49%) than men (44%).

The survey also reveals which cities have the most workers who feel underpaid, with San Diego leading the pack with (62%). Other cities with a high percentage of workers feeling the deserve more money include:

 Austin, TX (54%) Houston, TX (53%) Nashville, TN (53%) Philadelphia, PA (52%) 

On the other end of the spectrum, Miami is the city with the fewest employees complaining about being underpaid, at only 33%. Other cities on that list include:

 Dallas, TX (37%) New York, NY (37%) Los Angeles, CA(39%) San Francisco, CA (39%)
