    I have been with my company for six years and have not received a salary increase.  I did get a nice year end bonus until this past year when our sales dropped 37% and the bonus was cut in half.  In light of the poor economy and the drop in sales I didn't expect a bonus at all.  My company is sucessful too but our owner is being very cautious with the cash flow and I don't blame him.  I am thrilled to still be working at this point.  Running in the red like government entities is not an option in the private sector.  

    Private employers do not have the option of increasing their cash flow via taxes.  They must manage their budgets like we do, try to make a profit to reinvest in that business to keep it sucessful and keep people working.  If that does not happen they close their doors.

    I think it is difficult to pass judgment on an enthusiastic employee based on a couple sentences.

    Maybe he simply likes having a job, sees potential rewards down the road, appreciates that the company is making large contributions every year to cover employee benefits, or recognizes that the business itself needs to grow and become more stable before labor tries to cut it off at the knees.  These days a highly successful company in Michigan is one that isn't going farther into debt.  

    I enjoy a bit of snark as much as the next guy, but dude, you gotta pick your spots.

    and I don't feel that way.  I was happy with what I negotiated going in.  I view my employment this way, I agree to work for them for $x.xx.  My company agrees to compensate me for $x.xx.  When one or both of the parties involved no longer find the contract useful, either one can terminate it.  They don't owe me anything.  I don't owe them anything.  

    So I'm really not complaining.  I'm very happy with my company and pay.  My point is just that as Governor Christie said, the looters need a reality check.

    God help us!
