I think that is something that should be taken up with the HR department.
However, just because *you* see that employee as a "slacker" doesn't mean that is the case at all. AND you didn't know how much that employee was making before his raise so you don't know why he got a larger percentage then everyone else.
Example. Last year I got a 10% raise and everyone else got 5%. The reason was because I was making less (they were hired after me when the company was making more $$) so they gave me a larger raise to make up the difference and to put me back ahead (since I had been here longest). Now, had I found out I was making less then those hired after me I guess I could have pitched a fit and sued the company. That would have been frivolous since my company already knew and were ready to fix the problem.[/b]
You've got to be kidding me. Also, there ARE times when you KNOW you are performing as well as, or outperforming others. This is not about perception.
Your example, again, is a personal anecdote. Once again, the MAJORITY of the country does not fit into this. You need to look at the big picture- step outside your realm of experience and think about it how it pertains to the whole country.
No, you read it wrong. It was in my "regular" anual pay raise. It wasn't a "special raise" outside of that.
I *know* that this isn't the case everywhere. I know there are places where women aren't paid equally. I also know that I still do not support this change in the law.
Also, this has NOTHING to do with sexual harassment so I don't know why you keep bringing it up. It has to do with money ($$).
No. This has to do with
I'm not understanding why anyone would oppose it. The comparison was because you said go to HR. Women went to HR over sexual harassment and were ignored. The same thing could be done with this. That is why there is the comparison.
I couldn't disagree with you more. However, I am leaving it at that because *obviously* every comparison *you* make is right on and every one I make is as far from the truth as it can get.
I am a woman. I support women getting paid fairly. I do NOT support this change in the law. Period.
