Every year my company conducts performance and salary reviews in the first quarter. I had my meeting a few weeks ago, and it went spectacularly well! I've been awarded a 5.633% raise! It's a $4,000 increase taking me from $71,000 up to $75,000 gross!
The additional $333.33/month winds up being about $92.75/pay after taxes.
That's sure not going to hurt the snowflakes!
For anyone with a keen eye, you might have noticed that my cash-flow posts have incorporated this new rate. It should become effective the first pay period in April.
