Ep 19 - Not Asking For Pay Rises?


2022-02-14
With inflation skyrocketing and energy bills about to go through the roof, the governer of the Bank of England has this week warned against workers asking for substantial pay rises, asking everybody to deal with the 'pain' of the rising cost-of-living, whilst simultaneously taking home over £500,000 a year. We get deep into when and how we should ask for a pay rise, whether cost-of-living increases should be a given, how companies can better support employees during tough financial times, and Sanj declares some strong feelings which may lead to our Patreon earnings being diverted into legal fees.
