13. You are lucky you have a great boss.
Edited on Sun Mar-26-06 11:30 AM by Delphinus
Mine, in a meeting last week, said another position elsewhere within the "network" couldn't get filled because they were paying less than 30k. I looked at him, not saying a word (there's a time and place for battles) and wanted to say - It's not OK for this other position to earn only 30k a year, yet you don't fight to get me a raise to where I can earn more than $22k (BEFORE TAXES) because "I'm very well paid". Classism at its finest.

He's also the one I tried to talk to one time about the cost of rising gas prices and he just brushed it off. He makes a package of over $60k so unless it affects him, he's not concerned. And he's a freaking democrat!

Edit to add thankfully, when I was raising my son all by myself, I had two great jobs. One paid very, very well while the other one had a great family policy.
