I started talking about how I wanted a raise a few posts ago with “What Your Work is Worth — Part 1“. I wanted $3/hr raise and my boss said, “How about $1.50/hr now and $1.50/hr later?” I agreed but never saw anything.
Well my friends, I finally got my raise!
I was going to talk with my boss every week until I got what he promised (a better idea than e-mailing, thanks Money Guy Zack!), but yesterday my boss took care of it for me.
He called me into his office before I went out on a job for the day. Before I even sat down he said that he was going to give me a $1/hr raise. The way he said it, I knew it wasn’t time for negotiating, so I said thanks and got out.
I know $1/hr isn’t the $3/hr raise I wanted, but it’s still something! Man am I grateful for it, because, a buck is a buck.
I was waiting for a raise while Daisy over at Add Vodka was waiting for a job…. and I got my raise and she got her job! Awesome week for all!
