More than a third of us would give up our right to vote in all elections for life in exchange for an immediate 10% pay increase. That's according to a new survey conducted by the online lending site LendEDU. The average American salary is $52,000, so a 10% raise would be an extra $5,200 a year.
Some of what we'd give up for a raise:
- 12% would give up/break up with their significant other.
- 73% would give up alcohol for five years.
- 48% would give up all caffeinated products for the next two years.

5% of people in this survey would eat a Tide Pod for a 10% raise - we don't recommend that!
