I quit my job after no raise for 4 years... my end of year wages kept DECREASING while the cost of living went up up up. Thankfully my husband is a good provider.
It's more than the inflation rate, so I certainly wouldn't complain about 3%. Consider that seniors received NO SS raise for '11 OR '10.
Funeral homes should be on the list. I haven't had a raise in three years. My boss gives us a raise once every three or for years. When he does, it's the equivalent of 2% cost of living per year.
a raise these days means a box to stand on
