Alright I Need To Let This One Out

So far OCN has been clearly my most visited site since July '08. Helping and be helped, that's what my policy is, so far OCN has been great, with a ton of great people, although most of my posts here are to help, but this blog entry is nothing about hardware and technology, it's just simple entry to "de-pressurize" me...

This is at work, I began working December 05 on a computer store, where I still am, and currently writing this blog entry, for 3 years I was on a what I can call a yearly contract, and finally after 3 years I am here to stay. My boss for the past years didn't give me a single raise, until I finished the last contract, promises and more promises, and after all this time I went from miserable €500 to €550, now with a car loan to pay every month that's nearly half of the salary

What's really bothering me is that we got a new work colleague, began 6 months ago, and since then I feel transparent, why? -I've always heard from my boss that this company's policy is that in the same duties, older workers have higher salary-

My boss' excuse for the delayed and low raise is because I'm not "too outgoing", which I'm not, I'm usually pretty quiet and keep everything inside my mind. Imho ones salary should depend on their duty and on how well they perform it, completed by their time working in the company not by their personality...

Result? I was outpayed and to add everyone but me and and another older than me in the company mate got a "productivity bonus", including the new guy...

Don't get me the wrong idea, I could care less about what he gets payed or not, what I do care is the lame excuse I got from the boss, then if everyone is like him, I'm screwed! "You're not much outgoing? 550€ *turns to another guy* OH you are?! 650€ then! PLUS a bonus!" What messes me around is that I worked hard the past 3 years and I only get a sh.... raise...

Thank you everyone here on OCN
