I work in the private sector and have not gotten a raise in over three years.
Some industries have not rebounded. It seems as if teh only ones getting raises & bonuses are the ones whos' comapanies/jobs are funded through the government and taxes.
I'm in the private sector and we are getting approx 3+% for the next 4 years and not one cent comes from the government. That doesn't mean what you say isn't true. The private is hurtingand that reduces our tax base.The public sector has ,and should have freezes, because that is government spending and comes directly from the taxpayers.
