If it was me I would have asked him where he got that number from. Cause $310 isn't one of those numbers you hear often, usually it's $300 or $350.

Damn they suck at adjusting for hyperinflation. 300$ 1950s. Madman wall-street. My granddad made like 50k a year back than but injury and 5 boys took him out of the running for shit. So more like 20k than 50k a gain 1990s hyperinflation.

Never asked for a raise. Never needed to. I've gotten raises based on my ability and work ethic.

The way you handle it is to evaluate that employee's performance and see if a raise is merited and if so, much much.

"No, why?" is the most annoying response ever. If you can't provide the answer, then don't worry about the reason for the question.

How to handle an employee seeking a raise post 2015: "Sure Don, we will get to work on that right after we fire both your asses and replace you with rajesh and pajeet on two H1B visas." "Have a nice day!"

He was offered 12.5% raise in salary. When you're offered that kind of raise, you just say yes.

I hate how people use marriage and children as a reason for a raise. You don't deserve more money just because you're spending your money on a wife and kid.
Michael McClay (30 days ago)
Dude caved to early... Shouda started at $350 and held ground at $300. I didn't watch the show yet so idk who this other guy who makes $300 is but if he thinks they're similar he needed to hold out for more.

I love how Roger stands up as soon as the raise is mentioned. Like it's a bake and he doesn't want to be on less than equal footing.

Roger here: “No one makes that around here” Roger with Peggy: “How much do you make sweetheart?” Peggy: “You don’t know huh? That’s helpful.” So either 1) Roger doesn’t know, or 2) Roger liked Peggy enough to have her give him an offer like an equal.

Roger was one of those bosses who you went in to see, had this whole case planned out in your mind that you were gonna present to him, then it went nothing like you thought it would. You walked out thinking: "What the hell just happened?"

This is why employees shouldnt feel talking about wages is a taboo subject. Thats what employers want us to think, so we dont have the power of negotiation.

$225 in 1965 is the equivalent of $1,806 in 2018 dollars so...he upgraded to a roughly estimated salary of $93, 912 in 2018 dollars. Context is everything...

My dad told me that in those days the goal of everybody on salary was to make $100 a week. If you were making $100 a week you were on easy street.

Employee looks to get fair compensation for his work and the boss fucks him over. and a bunch of doofuses online think the boss is cool. lol. Its no wonder this country is in the shape it is. Workers have forgotten that the bosses are always out to fuck you over, to get as much as they can from you while stiffing you when its comes to payment.

Working for someone else is what most people do, but usually it sucks. The stability, if there is such a thing, usually comes with low pay, long hours, no family life, and unhappiness. Unless you are getting paid what you feel you are worth, and happen to love your job, which is rare on average I would say. When I was in high school, the minimum wage was $3.10 an hour. 38 years later it only doubled to $7.00 an hour but the cost of living increased over 10 times that. When I went on my own, I made $35 to $45 an hour as a Business Owner. Yes, it came with payroll and higher taxes, but I called the shots!
Carl Johnson (3 months ago)
It's $225 a week
Dan Lorett (3 months ago)
I haven't asked for many raises at jobs I already had, but every time I get a job I always negotiate for a higher wage. Really it's not terribly hard: know your selling points, know what the going rate for the job is in the area, and use those to your advantage. Are they hiring you for going rate or below? Never take less than going rate. Really, if you're a decent employee (or there's no reason the person hiring you doesn't know you're NOT a decent employee, lol) never take going rate either. Just have some good reasons why you should get more and say you're interested in working for them, but you need more money because X. Don't be afraid to ask for more (or just different) benefits if you can't get more money. Ask for a preferred working schedule. Or the reverse: use your ability to work a schedule they really need to get more money. It's mostly just using your brain and either having or faking confidence. Only twice have I not gotten more money, and both those times I got something else (once I got my employer to pay my contribution for healthcare instead, once I got a better schedule).

Going from the bottom to upper management I can say that low level employees over value themselves constantly, most do not understand how little they actually contribute to the bigger picture. Every single promotion I have ever received came with double the responsibility, stress and work load. Most employees, not all, but most are incredibly needy, lazy and unmotivated—everyone thinks they're a rockstar while just showing up and meeting the standard.
Crazywaffle5150 (17 days ago)
I've been on both spectrums. Managing is piss ant work. Go do construction. That's real work. It's not hard. I know managers who played video games in their office all day getting paid 70k a year. Iv'e done real worth. While they are fat with a beer belly and can't even hold an intellectual conversation.

Tyler Durden (3 months ago)
Anyone who thinks they deserve a raise but hasn't been offered one by their company will be able to get their raise working for someone else >>> IF THEY DESERVE A RAISE <<< Never ask for a raise. If your management is not aware that your skills warrant a higher rate of pay to keep you motivated to continue excelling and you become desirous of a raise... You should look for another job. Asking for a raise from your employer is death rattle. It makes clear so many things surrounding your current job. The lack of awareness in your management, the broken protocols in company practices that have let your salary lose its competitive edge, but most importantly, it is a clarion call to the company that "YOU ARE NOT CONTENT AT YOUR JOB!" Hence my statement. NEVER ASK YOUR COMPANY FOR A RAISE, ASK OTHER COMPANIES FOR MORE MONEY FOR YOUR WORK. if you truly deserve more for your work... You will get it.

wolfhunter98 (3 months ago)
Why is he trying to be so sneaky in his attempt to hide his opening of Kens paycheck? Just go to the person who's check you got and say: "Hey man I got yours by mistake and opened yours without looking at the name, then I noticed it was yours. Here's your check, sorry about that." It's a plausible thing, and mostly true... ;) Feel most people would be happy to get their check and not have to go through the pain / wait of having the accounting office cut a new one.

Two pearls of wisdom from a retired president of a company regarding raises, so you can follow them and get your raise or dismiss them like all the other average people in the workforce: 1. It's always cheaper to retain a good employee then to hire anew. 2. I have NEVER given a raise to an employee who didn't ask for one.

In my profession teaching - your salary is based on teaching years taught. You get more if you are in a position that carries responsibility. Noone feels bad. It's fair.

Is that a specific gesture Roger uses around 5:30? Looks like what I would assume to be the air quotes of the 60's

“I deserve a raise” is a losing argument. You sell labor and you have one customer, so you aren’t in a position to argue the price. Get more customers...now it’s not what you deserve, it’s your fair market value. There’s no argument to be had.
soapsudbud (1 month ago)
Yeah, either get more customers, increase the labor you're selling by collective bargaining or cut out the middle man entirely by cooperativizing/starting a business. Any corporation worth anything collective bargains against you to make sure they pay the least possible while still getting the labor needed by having multiple managers needing to sign off on pay as well as having an HR department.

When I was turned down for a raise after five years of working for a company with the old line “it’s not in the cards” I read the classic “How to win friends and influence people” by Dale Carnegie and a year later I gave my boss a large beautiful plaque that read “Award of excellence” followed by “For your strength, commitment, and admirable dedication to building a strong company that allows men to feed their families, and for your dedication to your family “ About a month later I received three raises within the following month, got two free basketball tickets, got the immediate office treated to watch another basketball game with the boss himself, got to use the company truck when I needed to move, got treated to dinner on another occasion, got several other gifts and got my picture taken with my boss
