I'm Happy for my Daughter

She went in the office at work the other day and told the manager if you want me to work here your going to have to pay me more money.
I didn't here anything else about it until tonight at supper when she said she got a $2.00 an hour raise. I was kinda floored as I felt she was being taken advantage of for years. I was simply amazed they would give her more money so easily. The funny thing was that she wasn't up at all for a review. I went into the office 2 weeks ago for my review as it was due then. The manager said she had to talk to the owner first. Well I guess that isn't gonna happen now since my daughter got a raise.[:D][:D]

    Why would your daughter getting a raise have anything to do with you getting a raise?

    Tell her congratulations on them seeing the value in her. Let's hope you have showed them the value in you. If you have, you will get raise

    She runs the kitchen, the hotel managers want nothing to do with it.

    I'm just saying I have to beg when it comes time for a review just to get the review. I had already asked for mine 2 weeks ago, I am still waiting. She just went into the office and got one without even having a review. I Will get a raise it is just a matter of how much.

    She didn't have to resort to singing the classic "take this job and shove it" [:D].

    Tell her congrats for me, Curt.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    She has to be doing a good job and management must recognize this. Good for her.

    She works her butt off and I felt the company was taking advantage of her. Its about time they recognized that. She's pretty much been there longer then everyone else.
