    Well....I am just stunned......

    So, I work for the state. It's common knowledge that you really have to negotiate your salary well when starting. We just don't get great raises around here. The Govenor typically gives 2-4% raise each year. We didn't get one last Nov due to the budget issues.

    So, I come back from lunch and I get this email. I think my mouth may still be hanging open. I have worked here since March 2005. Apparently I was supposed to get a 5% raise when I completed all of my new counselor skills training. I did not get it. I didn't even know about it.

    I will be getting my 5% increase on Aug. 1st. They are looking into how much they owe me in backpay since March 2006. Wow. I am just stunned.

    Everyone do the happy dance with me

    That's great news Johnie!

    Over three years of back pay should be a nice down payment on a Disney trip.

    Don't worry too much about Kidney Stones - my DH gets them ( quite often ) Lithotripsy breaks them down and they come out in your pee ( may give you a slight indication of chiildbirth.....

    Oh Sandra, I've had a kidney stone once before. I think it was far worse than the caesarean section I had.
