So it appears I just got my performance rating for FY05.

Got rated P (strong performance; objectives often met and exceeded, consistently reflected strong performance behavior).

My raise ? a big fat 0

Methinks FY06 will (me) be spent editing pictures and reading books.

Hmmmm - I've got mine next week, hopefully all is not lost quite yet.

Ask yourself, and answer honestly ..... Do you deserve any more money for the pathetic amount of work you actually do?  Silly

Just like FY05 then ......  Smile

How much of a raise were you expecting? I've known some people actually decline a raise, because the company felt they had to give something, but after the tax effect, the employee actually took home less, since it pushed them just into the next tax bracket.

LIES! ALL LIES I TELL YOU!

I do plenty of work in a week UTA! For example, in the past 5 days I have worked a total of 28 hours, during which I have installed 9 servers in 19" racks, installed Windows 2003 on one of them and next week I shall install Linux on several others.

Personally I think that's a hell of a week, and I fully anticipate having a few more half-days next week to compensate! Not to mention that i will be leaving at 3 o'clock today to ensure I don't overwork myself.  Smile

Are you talking about work or postings? Big grin

And you shouldn't blame others for your failing to consume enough "stimulants"  cloudnine 

But seriously, not getting a raise when you feel you deserved one is quite frustrating. What is your guess about the reason? It's obviously not your rating.

A regressive tax? How does that work? Usually you're only taxed at the higher rate on earnings above that level.

Nope, in the U.S. your entire income is taxed at the higher bracket, so even an incremental rise in gross salary can result in less net, if you're near the top end of one tax bracket, and then slightly go over the next bracket.

Well, I'll have you know that I only earn a salary of under £5,000 a year, and it'll only ever go up in line with the 10% tax threshold. Isn't that appalling? Bet you never knew how poor I am!

I didn't have a raise for the last 5 years.
According to statistics published by "Der Spiegel" last week, even though Germany's export figures are booming and big companies raking in record profits, real wage development (corrected for inflation) in Germany is actually negative, means we are earning less every year, but every time the topic of raises comes up, the CEOs complain about the hardship to the companies.

In fact now even renomated economists suggest that German economy should not just depend on exports, but the local population needs more money in their pockets to consume more.

It's even more punitive on married couples, if there's a large parity in their incomes. The wages from a part-time job by one spouse can nearly all go towards taxes, since it puts the couple together in a higher tax bracket than either of them would be individually if they file a joint tax return.

But in such circumstances, that's a major disincentive to work. Surely no politician or party would justify such an approach, it's madness from any angle. Why would they want it like that?
