How do I get my husband to ask for a raise at his work?
Hes been working at the same job for 4 years now, getting paid the same wage, $10.00 an hour. He works hard, and he even created a program for them, to make it easier to do time sheets. Yet he still won't ask for a damn raise. We have a baby on the way, and I don't make enough either, and we're always scraping by. Every time I ask him, ask for a raise, he says, Yeah, I know, I'm just waiting for the right moment to ask. Hes afraid they won't give him one, and I tell him, You just have to ask, even his co-workers say hes way overdue for a raise. How can I make him go ask them? I feel like I'm going to be the one to go into his work and ask for him. Its getting rather irritating, him not just asking. Its not like it would really hurt anything for him to just ask, if they don't give him a raise (which I highly doubt they won't), at least he asked, and we'll find some other way to get more money.
Its doubly irritating when I know they pay people that have been working there for 6 months more than him. Then some people that are terrible workers, get paid more than him. Its really frustrating.
