What is the biggest raise you have got from work?

I work in a hospital and we have not got a raise in a long time . 5 years or so. We just got a 10% pay increase after striking for weeks. It feels good to finally be able to pay all our bills for now.

I am almost there to get the salary that I am tithing for... but because of the pandemic it shrink back and I can't blame the company because we lost a lot. But before the year ends many blessings was poured out in our company and we are greatly blessed. Glory to God. I got a raised twice and its nice. Thankful to the Lord.

I'm glad to hear that you got a raise. I've never been in a place where I was able to get a raise. And I've only been at my current job for a few months, and even then I doubt I'll get a raise.

I never held a position which had a bargain union. That is a long time to go without a raise, I am happy for you that you did receive such a good raise. I hope that it makes up for the time that you had to strike.

I’m retired, but our teacher contracts always provided for yearly raises, including my pension. 5 years to work without a raise is ridiculous! Glad you went on strike and received a raise.
