Just found out that I am getting a much deserved raise in September. I’m excited but the only reason I’m getting it is because I finally bugged my manager enough to take it to the higher ups at the company. My coworker (who started over a year after I did and doesn’t do nearly as much work as I do) makes $2 an hour more than me. And I only found that out because I applied at another distributor that was going to pay $5 more an hour. So I’m glad that I’m finally getting the job but also a little disappointed in my company that it has taken so long.
