I know what you mean about raises being unheard of. thats the way it was at my place as well untill we where bought by the new company. these guys seem to be a little more into keeping their employees happy.

I think we both work for the same cheap guy! My boss is so tight he could squeeze the copper out of a penny He doesn't realize that a cost of living raise would be the decent thing to do since everything is more expensive now. He has money so he doesn't really feel the strain of raising gas prices or the cost of food. He should try to feed Jeff for a week- then he'd see how expensive it is
