I just got a raise today! Did you get one this year? (Or do you expect one?)

  • CONGRATS! If you consider landing a new position with better pay & benefits a raise, then I guess I did, too! Something I've worked awfully hard for a year to achieve and it paid off.

  • Yes, I have had 2 raises this year and 2 bonuses.

    My 2 raises combined added an additional $5,000 to my annual salary and 1 bonus was for $1,000 and the other was for $2,500.

  • Nope. Iwasnt expecting one, and didnt get one. This is my 3rd year here, the 1st year I got a $400/mo raise and last year was $200/mo. I figured that was it for a while LOL

  • I haven't gotten a raise ever since I started here almost 4 years ago... Not expecting one either. It's okay though, my pay is well above average as it is.

  • Nope. I make $9.00/hour. Unless minimum wage ever exceeds that, I will never make more.

  • @AMsMommy212 - I didn't say it was a big fat raise... I just said a raise. With the economy the way it is, I'll be content not to get pay cuts. :D

    @TeensMom07 - I definitely count that as a raise!! Congrats!

  • Yes. I got one earlier this year, which was very nice after my company not giving any last year.
