Default COL and merit raises

My company has now eliminated annual raises, has anyone else had this happen?

Maybe you should eliminate your company.

What is their alternative?

Temporary or permanent?

SUPPORT CHILDREN'S CANCER RESEARCH

I'm raising money for children's cancer research by getting my head shaved again - my 11th year!!! - at a St Baldrick's event. Please help out by making a donation! Any amount helps!

TO DONATE, OR FOR MORE INFO, CLICK HERE

Or if you're in the area, you can come out to the event and say hi, see me get shaved, have a beverage or two, and see an appearance by Stark Raving Dad. It's at the Kerry Piper in Willowbrook, IL on Sunday, March 17th, 2019 probably from about 11AM to 3PM. If you show up, you'll get a chance to hear me sing Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young's "Almost Cut My Hair".

Please help this great cause and make a donation!

You should scale down your future effort proportionate to expected raises. If you think you should be getting a 10% raise to cover inflation and all the good work you’ve done over the year, and you work 40 hours/week now, consider working 40 x 90% = 36 hours/week for the next year.

Alternatively, go find another job. Employers don’t get away with this kind for too long if people vote with their feet.

Messaging is permanent but perhaps theyd bring it back in the future if a bunch of people leave or something (i think they want that though).

Alternative is changing jobs within the company or promotion and determining your new fixed pay.

The worst part is that it's not the deadwood but the good performers that will leave.
