Beg, Plead and Cajole if you must
If you want a larger raise and if you think you deserve one, then you should
prepare to make an argument, sell your accomplishments and quantify your
contributions. No one gets a raise because of wedding plans, births, new
houses or old debts...
An employee should make this argument armed with the
original job description and a list of actual tasks and responsibilities.
If the employee’s own research indicates that the credit union is not
paying competitively for that job, most credit union managers would welcome
that news and re-evaluate the pay scale.
