I told you about the formal complaint Deb submitted to the company bosses and then what the results of that investigation were. Then I told you about the $500 bonus she was given and that the General Manager was going to talk to the COO about a raise for her. Well, Friday she got a raise!! $4100/year! Ten percent of her salary increase! I am so proud of this girl and her determination to do well at whatever she tries. She is so much better at life than I ever was. I'm very happy and proud to have her as my daughter!

They told her 10%, which doesn't sound like a lot until you realize she was already at $41K. Then you realize it's a nice chunk of change. It's almost $150 more per month.

@jerzgirl Still, even a 10% raise is something. It's a good chunk of change, especially with how much she already earns. She has earned it.

When a person is determined and dedicated to a thing, its a must one excel in that thing...

Not always, but they do get recognized for determination if their immediate world is working properly. She's lucky that both determination and excellence come naturally to her.

Wow! What a nice environment Deb is in. How I wish I am in such a nice environment. There are some organization you lodge a complain and nothing happens.

I agree - there are some companies where you lodge a complaint and you lose your job because you're making waves and they prefer the status quo.

@jerzgirl Yes. You are perfectly correct. That's the world we are and the kind of humans that makes up our world.

@Spassion That's why I'm so glad the owners and managers of this company don't play those games. I'm so happy this was a positive experience for her.

She's feeling overworked but at the same time feels good that she is recognized for her talents. You can like what you do and have days where you would rather stay home just because it's that kind of day or week on the job. But, she's not willing to give up. She wants to do the best possible work she can.
