“I have worked in my current position for about four years. During this four year period I have not gotten any type of salary increase or raise. Some of my friends have told me to just quit and find another job. Unfortunately that’s not so easy in this economy.
I have tried to show that I am commited to the company by taking on extra projects and working overtime whenever necessary. Despite my best efforts and hard work, I have not gotten a “thank you” or a raise. To make matters even worse, all the executive staff have been getting a salary increase every year along with $5,000 bonuses. Although I like my co-workers, I need to work in a place that shows appreciation and respects their “hourly” employees.
