Seriously my dh's boss is so... SPACEY, for one, but just not exactly a "boss" when it comes right down to it. DH runs the whole company (local ISP, just him and 2 other employees and really quite a small company) practically and just okays everything through the Boss, but a lot of the time the boss comes to DH for answers or opinions on stuff. So I guess it shouldn't surprise me that he wants DH to come up with his own idea for a raise :P The problem is we don't know how much to ask for! There are so many to it for us, we are getting our own house soon so obviously will have more expenses. The changes to the tax brackets and the Social Security and everything is gonna have an effect (already IS on his checks so we need to figure out how MUCH of an effect depending on the raise). Plus he wants dh to think about going to Salaried instead of hourly wage but didn't say if that was gonna mean no more sales bonuses or "on-call" bonus or anything :-/ Sigh, sometimes I wish they still had the payroll/HR lady that worked there when DH first started with the company but then dh would not be manager and would probably be making less anyways. Anyways, just needed to vent a little, although I'm happy about the raise!
SO, have you ever been asked how much money you wanted from a job? Or has it just been "This is what your salary/wages will be" with no input?
