    Because if the workers get the raises they deserve/have earned there won’t enough left to give obscene bonuses, just R rated ones. Can’t have that situation now can we?

    Of all of the characters in the strip Dana and Rita always have the best facial expressions. Mr. Roberts you excel in those two especially when we see them together, Dana always has that angry scowl around Rita and Rita generally has those great I hear you but I’m not listening to you looks. It’s one of the reasons I like this strip more then most of the others I read.

    I guess that is their relationship. Doing the cartoon acting is the fun part.

    Worker pay can’t be raised because of the two reasons:

    “Economic Conditions”

    and

    The Golden Rule – He who has the Gold makes the rules.

    Gracias,

    speaking for all the “little people”…the ones who won’t/don’t get raises….this isn’t EVEN humerous.

    That seems patronizing. Do you know Abraham Lincoln’s famous quote: “If I don’t laugh, I’ll surely cry?” Life is not as simple as ‘people who have problems will be instantly depressed if they see their problems reflected in humor.’ I have been one of those ‘little people’ most of my adult life, making very little money working for people doing very well for themselves. Through those times I was always able to make jokes to make myself feel better and keep myself going. The truth is, we still don’t make much off these strips. The internet has yet to figure out a way to make cartooning pay the way it used to. Print is dead? Shame. Print paid better.

    Maybe not… but it IS humorous.

    While we’re at it, here’s a strip we linked to last week when the subject of raises came up. I wrote this gag as an exaggeration of a real situation at a place I worked. http://www.webcomicsnation.com/scottartist/bobman/series.php?view=archive&chapter=31534

    Yes, that’s true. It’s not a bone.

    Well, the truth hurts………..the workers.

    C’mon, Rita, be ahead of the curve. Give the raises which brings up worker morale which pushes up worker productivity which brings in more money. Use the money for raises, bring up worker morale, bring up productivity, bring in more money. Get the picture, Rita?

    @invertedyesterday

    You forget, executives have no concept of worker morale. Pride, dignity: these are alien concepts. To the executive, the primary motivating factor for the worker bee to perform to the highest quarterly profitability is to ’be grateful they even have a job, because plenty of people would gladly do it for less, blah blah blah…"
