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
