    Sounds like IBM… most people have not had a raise in a numbers years even with good performance reviews

    no wonder the income gap is so wide between the rich and the rest.

    The rich get raises and bonuses and every kind of gift they can give themselves. The rest of us are supposed to be glad we have jobs.

    Start your own business and hire someone. Then you can make that person glad they have a job.

    A certain giant global communications corporation that I won’t name (it has 3 letters and an ampersand) is paying the new techs less than half what us older techs made B4 we retired and they get fewer benefits. Both the IBEW and the CWA got crushed and had to agree to it.

    Sure, there will always be deadbeats at every level. I’ve also worked where workplace goof-offs get ahead because they’re on the company softball team, while hardworking people who don’t participate in activities that have absolutely nothing to do with the business itself stay in one place. Those ‘players’ are also allowed to stroll in late, leave early and take days off with no repercussions.

    This weekend! Management Seminar. Topics discussed: “How to Treat Your Employees Like Freakin’ Three Year Olds.” followed by “10 Most Reliable Ways To Demand Respect Without Ever Earning It.”

    So true; there’s a high paid guy in my wife’s office who seems to be reading local newspapers or playing solitaire openly on his computer every time she has to walk by his office to get to the office printer. Recently they gave him a Blackberry, so instead of using the computer, he can play his games on that instead. He is for some reason protected by management (and this is a unionized municipal government office!). They have scheduled a week where all the office workers have to document what they are doing every 15 minutes of their workdays for a week. It was conveniently scheduled during his vacation week, and he is allowed to use the following week for his diary, when, of course, he will have a backlog of work to do and appear to be the busiest worker they have.

    My Dad worked for an ad agency with that guy. Well, okay, one just like him. Like Ed, he actually spent time with his feet up on his desk, or he would wander around pestering other people- who were trying to work. But he had a degree, so he had to be worth holding onto.

    When I retired from one of the country’s largest banks at the time, at the Christmas party I receive a mug with the company logo on it that was filled with M&Ms. Didn’t bother going back a couple of weeks later for the cake they were going to serve.

    At my last job, the one I left about a year ago, the last raise I received was when Clinton was president. (I’m not saying he was responsible just giving a time line)

    This reminds me of when I worked at a chocolate factory. Actually, when I left. On what would be my last day, a hurricane was coming. Only three of us had shown up when the owner came through and said he was closing because of the storm. So I went home. I found out later that my supervisor had shown up just after that with a farewell cake for me in her car. A few weeks later, I had some time off from the job I’d left to take, so I visited. They’d saved me some of the cake in case I came by, so I hung out, had my cake and ate it too.
