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.

300 a week? Like $300? Lol

$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!

It's $225 a week

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.

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.

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.

“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.

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

I love how Roger ask Peggy how much she makes. Her reply is "you don't know? that's helpful". Roger used the same tactic with Harry when he asked for a raise and he ended up not getting the amount he wanted. This shows how ambitious and able to take charge of the situation. Unlike her counterparts, who were viewed higher by just being a man.

The whole thing about "don't tell your coworkers how much you make" is such a joke. With that mindset, there will be people with very similar jobs making wildly different amounts of money. I'm open about it and it's helped me get raises.

when i used to work for other people, the way i would get more money was going to a second job for an interview, telling them what i make at my current job, and saying i'd be willing to come work for them for 1 dollar more, and since i was already there they would often give me the extra dollar an hour more. Then i would tell my current boss I was exploring my other options very non confrontationally and i would say I would love to stay but they are offering me 1 dollar more an hour, and i would say, "i would sure like to stay if you could beat thier offer" and 9 times out of 10 they would, and often times they would promote me too, just to keep me, because I was a good employee, But I'm a greater boss.

I think he got a pretty reasonable raise; assuming his base pay of $200 is fair. Since 25/200 is 12.5% and he didn't switch company.

Nun Ya Beeswax (4 months ago)
How to handle an employee looking for a raise? If they have to ask for a raise they probably dont deserve one. If they are a valuable part of the team if they not there for more than a week does the company fall apart? Most likely no. If you dont bring in 5 times more money than what the company pays you you are not vital. Now that being said make yourself more valuable and the money comes later.

According to temp agencies. A change of job or an additional duty is deemed in need of more money. Somewhere the idiots getting promoted to positions don't know that and I think it's higher ups that do but don't pass it on, to apparently save money. By not giving a raise to someone you pile work on. Just saying how 🤬ed everything is. And the rich and positioned keep on 🤬ing. I've noticed the exact opposite of this scenario in reality. The first to get raises are people that are married or they have kids. This show is trying to claim that swinging singles make all the money and married people are tied into a budget. I don't ask for a raise. If they don't give me one, I just leave and find work someplace else that hires for more. I hate dealing with c🤬nts that think they are in control of your life. They usually don't deserve their position and abuse it at every moment.
