I was going through some old paperwork while watching the game and ran across my offer letter from my previous station. It stated I was being offered a FT courier position at $16.75hr. This was in 2008. It really hit home that in March of 2008 I was at $16.75hr and now almost 5 years later I'm making only $1.42hr more with the 2% raises and one year with no raise plus last year's 3%. And with the new raise system implemented last year, assuming they keep it in place, I'm probably not going to catch the midway point of the pay range and get 5% raises because they'll probably keep moving the mid point higher. After 14 years this is the best they can do? Pretty sad.
