    I got called into the office today.

    While at work, the warehouse manager came by, and told me he needed to see me. I finished the repair I was working on, and went up front. He calls me into the conference room, and my mind went "there". Well, I sit down, and he opens my file. He notes I've been there almost 11 years, great track record, only one write-up in that time(BS write up from a former supervisor), and above average attendance record. Well, he tells me he's been talking to HR, and he has some bad news.........

    They are bumping me up from $11.50 to $14/hr, which is almost top pay for my department.

    Normally, you aren't bumped that high until at least 15 years on the job. However, when I am needed in other departments or on special projects, I get-r-done. I've already decided first order of business is to pay off my emergency credit cards, and start saving for a couple of new toys.

    Congrats.

    Nice to see work ethic and positive performance is rewarded. Of course, new toys will require range reports.

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    It has been suggested in some business related studies that salary is not at the top of a person's ability to really love their work, but is actually superseded by knowing that they are appreciated for doing a good job and having mastery of their vocation. Of course this is buttressed by having a good pay level in your field!

    Congratulations on having achieved both and being a most positive asset to your job. (of course it never hurts to look around at the competition outside of the walls of your work! )
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    Employers like that are a rare breed indeed.
