Recent inflation has left many Americans wishing they had more in the bank this year.

In fact, per a survey from Bankrate, 55% of them say their earnings aren't keeping up with the highest inflation in decades. But some salaried workers have been fortunate enough to see their incomes increase over the past couple of years: ADP researchers recently surveyed residents of the 53 biggest metro areas (those with more than one million residents) in the U.S. to see where the largest jumps took place, CNBC reported.

ADP's Geography of Recent U.S. Wage Growth revealed that between 2019 and 2021, salaried workers — across all earnings levels — did see their incomes increase. Median monthly earnings rose by 6.77%, high-end monthly earnings by 8.02% and low-end pay by 10.36%.

What's more, the study found that high-end pay saw the greatest increases in expensive coastal cities, while low-cost cities saw outsized salary gains among low earners.
