Funny, but not funny cartoon from CartoonStock.com – The TRUTH about pay raises at many corporations.
"That $20 paycheck deduction is for new benefits – like the $10 raise you just got."
ARGH. You can't put enough spin on that statement to make it look pretty!
Has anyone experienced a similar situation where you received a "raise" and then an increase in benefit costs that completely vaporized the raise and then some?
