That's all?

Cliff has known all week that there was going to be a meeting at work today concerning the economy and the state of the company.

He just called me on his break and told me that basically, the news is this: There'll be no raise this year.

He and I are both fine with that. If that will help keep the company's head above water, it's a good thing.

Thank God for Cliff's job!

We are still walking in favor and living the dream.

Same situation for me, no raise this year, but job is secure. Glad things are secure for Cliff.

I don't blame you. I would do without a raise too....just thankful to have a job. I'm thankful to have a job too...another reason we didn't complain when we were told that we were going on a 12 hour rotating shift.

Very good news.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

That is good news! If it makes you feel any better, I haven't had a raise in the past 4 years.

I couldn't agree more. Dh's company (an airline) has made DRASTIC changes to try to survive. At this point, survival is more than enough. Praising God for His provision for you and for us.

The city I work for has made it perfectly clear that we shouldn't expect raises for 2-3 years. I wouldn't mind so much but our benefits costs keep going up.

p.s. I wish I made commission on citations. lol
