In this economy? Where? Also, where are the FReepers that believe that loyalty should be rewarded with a raise now and then? Should employers NEVER give a raise? If so, why not?
“In this economy? Where?”
Well, jobs *are* out there. It may not be the job she “wants” and it would probably be another entry-level type job, but they are there. She said she was in nursing school, too. It does sound like she’s motivated to better herself.
And yes, I do think that loyalty and hard work should be rewarded (which is why I found another job, myself) Maybe she’s had her own issues and KFC didn’t think she deserved the raise. Who knows? But if it’s not working out the way she wants it to, even in this economy, she should take it upon herself to go another direction.
No fast food employer would be giving her the raise she and the other protesters were wanting...from $8 an hr to $15. That’s absurd.
