People always say that money can't buy happiness, but is there a certain salary that can determine success? Brian Skowronski reports on that magic number many workers say they're seeking to be content. In our careers, most people are looking for many things, perhaps top among them, success and money. But what do workers really want and how much do they need to earn to feel successful? The magic number is a salary of $75,000, that is the amount most workers say they'd need to be paid to be content with their pay. Most of us right now, well, we aren't happy with our salary. A new national survey by career web site "CareerBuilder" found 65 percent of full-time workers say they don't earn the salary they'd like. The sweet spot, the survey found, is right at a minimum of $75,000 or higher. But interestingly enough, money doesn't buy the feeling of success. The study also found that over half of workers said they can feel successful without hitting that $75,000 salary range. Analysts say this is a healthy approach, as many workers, while they'd like to earn more, understand that work is more than a paycheck, it's also about giving meaning to our lives.
