[quote user="HRFLDist"]Just wondering if anyone had any advice on how to communicate a wage increase freeze.[/quote]
We are not exempt from the tremendous forces at work shredding the world economy. Although future business may pick up because our competitors are all going out of business, spewing their workers out into the labor market where they will languish until we are able to pick them up for less than we're paying you, business has not picked up yet. Therefore, there will be no pay raises. Be glad you have a job. I know I am.
No kidding. It seems like everywhere I turn, I hear people complaining (despite the fact the jobs they have are quite secure), "I'm not making any money! I need a better job! I'm going to find a good job!"
My response is simple: "Good luck."
I wish (some) people would appreciate what they have... especially during these economically challenging times.
