I trusted my boss was being fair to me and everyone else on our pay. We are all friends and get along great. I thought he was a trustworthy guy, but found out he isnt as trustworthy as i thought. Now first I relize a boss/company will try to pay as little as they can get away with, but this is rediculous. Hes told us that $11.00 - $13.00 an hour is all he can afford to pay a person in my position. I make $12.75. Its very low compared to the average in the surveying field for what I do, but we all try and work together and be fair. He recently hired a new guy from Atlanta to fill a vacant position like mine. We all assumed he started out at around $12-$13 an hour. We found out via "check stub in truck", he is making $17.50 an hour! To beat it all, he doesnt have a clue how to do the job and is so slow. I set 17 pins and marked 10 lines in 8 hours, while he set only 2 and marked one in the same day!! I even have to show and explain to him how to do the job when we are working together. Ive lost respect for my boss and feel taken advantage of, and now relize he only acts like he want to be honest just to keep the rest of us low paid so he makes more. He has been told we all know about the huge pay gap, and he is going to give us all a raise next week he says. Dont know how much... Most raises he gives are only .50 on the hour. im loosing it.
