Any possibility of an inflation raise?

Having problems living in the top 2% of US wage earners?... Private schools, new pools and German SUV's hitting the bottom line. Not much sympathy here. Good Luck!
You should find out who they are and help them then. Since you are paid well and have great benefits, you should give them some of your paycheck. It would be nice of you to do so.
Many of us are paid well with great benefits, but there are many that are not and the inflation ki--s their budgets. Our hourly employees and some of the ones on the low-end of their pay scales need a little help. I would be fine with the company addressing their pay to help them out with inflation. Many of these people work hard to support the rest of us and it would be nice to help them out.
Sure, there is always the possibility of it. I personally don’t need it, but, for peons, you certainly are welcome to beg like good little sheeple, hat in hand.
99% of companies do NOT take inflation into account when it comes to raises. So no.
Your daily pay should be indexed to the S&P 500. That will give you a perspective of what retirement in the no pension era is like.
If they give an inflation increase they should also decrease salaries when inflation goes down.
Most companies give raises to make sure they can attract new employees, retain the ones they have and to recognize performance, not because you can’t manage your money. Cut back your spending. Delay major purchases. Switch to less expensive brands. Decide what you can do without. Don’t expect others to solve your spending issues because of the choices you’ve made, loans you’ve taken out, things you like to buy, and brands you prefer.
