I've been waiting for April to come for a year. Last year, at review time at work, I vowed this year I'd work to the bone, proving how indispensable I am and then get a mega raise this year. Kaboom! That's my plan exploding in my face.
My company will be announcing a hiring and raise freeze tomorrow. Perfect timing. I had been counting on that raise. It wasn't just the extra money (to get us one step closer to buying a home), but the principle. Good, hard, honest work deserves reward, especially when you know the big heads as I call them makes an exorbitant amount of money. I won't even be getting the living wage increase. Great just great.
