The economics of our nation made me dread the yearly process. I had been like so many, barely scraping by from paycheck to paycheck. I had resolved that at least having a paycheck I should just suck it up and be grateful.
When I heard the words no one is getting more than ## percent raise my heart sunk. Then my manager threw on something unexpected. (Except you). He actuall surprised my supervisor who hadn't expected it either. The manager went above the managment team and HR to get my raise approved. HE mentioned knowing that I had people in NEW YORK and he didn't want to lose me.
I feel so blessed what a way to start the year!- To celebrate I may even go get my hair done!
