Is there a point in your career that you have to ask for a raise in your salary? Or discuss with your employer about the possibility of increasing your wages? I am just curious about this because for the life of me, I would be embarrass about asking my employer for a raise. I always think he knows the efforts I do for the job, so it will be up to him to compensate me for it. Please share your thoughts.

Maybe recently i will ask for a raise in my salary. I just work for only six months. I learn some in this company but not very much. My salary is so little now ,so I want to ask for the raise. I also don't have the experience about this, but my colleagues and I will together do this. If you try your best to do your job, I think your boss will raise your salary!Good luck!
