Re: Time to get a raise...

Thank you all for helping me,

I think I figured out how much I'm going to ask.

Re: Time to get a raise...

"is my boss willing to pay an extra 30k to avoid this?" - it does sound like a lot, I mean thats not an inflationary increase we are talking is it. You are always free to ask - cause they can say yes or no.

"I've said I had 4 years of experience but since I was working 80 hours a week the first two years, I think I can say 6 years of experience" - not sure about that. Ive done 8 years, and some of that is hours up at 3 in the morning some places, and I don't claim any more that that.

"I meet new retouchers on a regular basis. They say they could do my job," - thing is everyone THINKS they are better than everyone else in this industry, whether they actually are or not is another matter. Im looking forward to the great Retouchathon – I modestly expect to come about 80% to 90% from the top in this contest.

Sh*******tttttt..... I'll make you look like the big monkey you are with one of those hands tied behind my back and the other one working my old Quadra. While flirting with your Mom.
Just bring the martini shaker and keep them coming.

Re: Time to get a raise...

In your spare time, go out and get a few job offers for the extra 30k that you would actually accept. Then you can ask for the raise knowing what you're really worth in your market. If you don't get the market adjustment from your boss, quit.
