I don't understand people not getting pay raises. I get one every year between 3&5%. Change jobs every few years. Get 10-15% increase. Snagged a sweet 20% bump in base plus a 10% increase in bonus pay on the last move.

Maybe people need to better themselves or stopped working for places that don't pay crap.

People get raises as they gain experience and new titles. The base pay for those positions is not going up, though, so overall salaries remain stagnant. If people weren't getting raises, overall salaries would be declining as experienced people with better pay retire.

i'll probably never get a pay raise again.  i'll consider myself super lucky if i don't get paid less before i'm done.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

Way OT but there's a lot of research out there (I've read it but am not going to go find it and will probably misrepresent some of it here) about how high salaries are rarely maintained for long durations. I know you're not salaried and have no idea how much money you make and am only posting this because of the comment about probably taking a pay cut at some point. like, once you hit some 0.2% level of earning (made up percentage because I don't remember what it was) it's nearly impossible to maintain that for the long term. I work for a very large global company. I'd say our highest level of executives last about 2 years on average in those roles. Rarely do they leave non-voluntarily. I think the grind and responsibility of the position makes it a short term stint. also there are parachute roles with the company that still pay extraordinarily well without having to maintain that level of responsibility/risk. I think I've got about another 5 years of climb left in me and then will be happy to coast or take a lesser role on for the remainder of my time. otherwise I'll probably die young from stress and the resulting bad habits that accompany the stress.

yeah, i'm not on salary, so there aren't any col increases or anything like that.  and i'm paid way more than is necessary, so very possibly the market will figure that out.  at best, it won't figure it out and no one will undercut me, but no way are me and my fellow grifters gonna try to bill more.


also, i think you should parachute early and not risk early killing yourself early.

IMO, once you're making a salary that you're comfortable with, you should definitely start focusing on how to work less rather than how to make more money.

yeah, I think there is a stigma to that in most corporate cultures though.

That was actually a decrease in the increase you would have otherwise had tho.

I have no idea what that is supposed to mean and I’m now enraged for all of 2019.

I did my taxes this past weekend and I got more back than I did last year. I also didn’t take as much out each paycheck for about half of last year. :cool:

Did my taxes last week. Paid a less percentage of my adjusted income but paid a higher percentage of net income. Overall, pretty much the same.

in terms of actual economic impact, even 665 billion far overstates the case.
