I'm the online graphic artist here at the newspaper. It's not that they haven't wanted to give me a raise (at least I hope that's not the case, lol) it's that our parent company instituted a wage freeze along with a bunch of other money saving policies the summer I started here (right when the economy started to tank). So I'm not alone in not receiving any kind of wage increase, but it was only projected to last for a year then the raises would be re-instituted; we're still waiting.

Yup, you're on the list .

All the little bits I have laying around not on the car and some of the smaller non cosmetic pieces are going to be the first to go. The body parts won't start being sold until after Carlisle.

I hope it doesn't do a damn thing. I'm not getting stuck at home or anywhere I'll be at.

Screw you mother nature.

I love the economic climate. 3 years here and I'm still working for what I was hired at. And you KNOW that after 3 years I'm responsible for like 5 times that amount of stuff. One of the major reasons I want out of here.
^^^ Have you asked? Wage increas freeze or WHATEVER..I"d tell em I wanted a raise. Can't hurt!

Yes, that's been done several times. They (should) all know that I'm on the verge of leaving because of it. My manager was trying valiantly to get something about it written into the budget for this coming year, but I believe that is dead in the water.

I am currenlty job hunting elsewhere (MD)
