When was the last time you asked for a raise?

Getting a raise keeps you motivated, lifts your self-esteem and adapts your income to all the increasing living costs.

When was the last time you asked for a raise?

Also, what arguments do you usually use in the discussion and have you ever switched the jobs due to not getting the raise?

Curious how long are you working for in your current role? 👀

6 years this one. 14 years previous job, 11 years the one before that, and 7 years before that.
I've always been given pay rises, never had to ask.

Never had to...raises were fine.

Promotions though are a different story....it's always good to have that conversation.
