Is it because you got older and promoted or because the same job you did 10 yr ago was better paid?

I would hope promoted. What kind of loser would stay in the same position for 10 years?

Its a combination of both. I still do mostly the same job, but i do have a better position on paper.

You got better at doing the same job too through experience, which makes sense to increase your pay even if it’s the same job.

I mean it’s a bit misleading to say you got more “purchasing power” which suggests you can buy more things with the same money when you actually meant that your pay was increased.
