You're on your way to the top ... Congratulations !
No. Once the boss thinks you're content and not going anywhere, you'll fall off the radar. They should always be worried about losing you. Just my two cents.
Employment shaming is real.
More is always better than the alternative, in regards to pay.
My pension is index linked. Sometimes I don't get much of a rise- but I never send it back.
What do you do for a living?
along with the money he should thank you for your hard work
I'd would be nice if every worker bee got a $3/hr raise.
Unfortunately, my union-Boilermaker pension is not. This means that the longer I live, the more my pension shrinks. However, the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Old Age Security (OAS) are.
My father was a federal civil servant. He started working for the Canadian government in 1944 at 17 years of age and began paying into the pension plan. This was in Newfoundland (now known as Newfoundland & Labrador); Newfoundland did not become a part of Canada until 1949.
He retired after 35 years with 70% of his last five years.His pension was indexed to the inflation rate. He was 52 years old and lived until he was 76. He had a good run, lol.
Get those colonoscopies early, guys - that's what killed him. Otherwise, he was in good health and walked 5 kilometres every day.
He was able to keep up his dental, drugs, eyewear, etc. for a modest amount. Medicare is available to all in Canada, courtesy of taxpayers since the early sixties. I'm 71 and retired in 2015. I learned a lesson from my father though. Through my union, for $92 CAD monthly, I've been able to keep up my dental, drugs, eyewear, etc for myself and my wife.
Medicare does not cover dental or eyewear. Depending on where you live in Canada, there is some drug coverage for those over 65. Healthcare comes under provincial jurisdiction - not federal - in Canada even though much of the funding comes from the federal government. Of course we know that the federal government doesn't have any money - it all comes from the taxes of hardworking Canadians.
Congrats. I hope this will become a trend for the hard working folk. Sharing in success can only be a good thing. Rock on @2HBStrat , rock on.
While a little off to an aside...
I find comparing different "normals" interesting, so thanks for the thought provoking info.
The very last point piqued my interest, and made me want to ask....
Do you think this perspective is widespread? Or is it more widely an expected "entitlement"?
(Hope that doesnt "step on any toes"!)
Let’s see; $3 x 40hr/wk x 25wk = New Gibson ES335. That’s my math.
It doesn't step on my toes.
The OP says $3 per hour.....someone else said per house.
If I got a $3 raise why I'd have let me see Oh I know $3
I think it initially said house. Probably edited
That’s a pretty big unexpected step-up for most hourly-wage folks!
Congrats! That's a decent raise, I don't care who ya are!
I guess I missed that....
I remember when I got a $.25 raise per hour working for the hotel. They said I did a great job but it was all they could afford. I said, to myself, BS. And opened my own company six months later.
