I want a raise.
Could we possibly discuss my salary sometime?
It's enough to live on.
The best thing about my job is that I get lots of benefits——a company pension, private health insurance and things like that.
You may have one-month of paid holiday every year.
I want a promotion.
A: Could we possibly discuss my salary sometime?
A: First of all, I want you to know that I really like working for this company. Do you think I'm doing a good job here?
B: Well. You're a very hard-worker.
A:I try very hard. The problem is my salary just isn't enough to live on. Now that I have a wife and a child to support, we hardly have enough money for food and rent.
B: There are trying times for everyone. What do you propose?
A: I could really use a 5% raise.
B: That's quite a bit. If I give you a raise, I'm going to have to give everyone a raise.
A: Listen, if you give me a raise, I'll take on extra responsibilities.
B: That sounds reasonable. How about this? From now on, you can be responsible for scheduling. That means if you can't find someone to cover a shift, then you'll have to do it.
A: That's fine. Do I get over-time for any extra hours that I work?
B: Of course. It'll be against the law If we didn't.
A: That sounds good to me. I really appreciate it.
B: You're welcome. come in early tomorrow and I'll show you how to do the scheduling.
