## Business math word problem: calculating salary through "growth tiers"

I'd like some help coming up with a formula for calculating annual salary increases. The idea is that a given job description will have two "growth tiers", through which an employee's salary will increase at different rates, and beyond which their salary cannot increase further (except for cost-of-living adjustment). There's also a "base growth factor", which is determined by individual employee performance--e.g. 10% for a stellar employee, 6% for a good employee, etc. Lots more inside.

What should I do so that I can get at least some of this back?

Here we go guys, I found a perfect job for me: a baby with complex heart issues is in the hospital since March. Her mom needs me to be there for maybe two hours in some days to give her a break and help her get out of the hospital for a bit. She lives in the hospital with her daughter. I totally fell in love with Charlotte. She is the most amazing baby in the world. Now I start feeling guilty for taking money for what I do. I feel terrible for accepting money for other people's misery. What would you guys do? I just feel bad for her, and think what if she will not make it.

## Is it worth leaving one job for another for the same pay?

I'm employed now but have been job-searching for a few months. I've finally found a company that I'd like to work for. The disappointing part is, the final offer they've made is for a lower salary than I'd wanted; after crunching the numbers, I would be earning the same as what I earn at my current job, with no title change. Is it a good idea to move to a new employer for equivalent pay, if the only discernable difference between the two is that the new job seems more interesting?

## 1-on-1 time with the president...

Posting for a relative... The President of my company has asked everyone in my department to meet with him in a 1 on 1 meeting in an effort to get to know us on a more personal level. I work for a Fortune 500 company in the travel industry. I studied Economics in college and deal with supply/demand pricing every day. From what I've heard, his meetings with non-management employees have been very relaxed. At the end of the meeting he asks what your salary is and if you are happy with it. He also asks if we have any questions for him. My question to you is what should my answer be to the salary question be? I am happy with what I'm getting paid but obviously want more. And what kind of questions should I ask him?

## Employer reveals they've been inadvertently underpaying me for years

Due to an accounting error, my employer has not been paying me my full salary for the last several years. I'm in sales, and I get paid on commission, so my paycheck fluctuates month to month - I never even noticed my paycheck was always secretly slightly less than what it should have been. My employer just discovered their error and told me immediately. Which I hugely respect. We have a good employment relationship and we'd all like it to continue. They're saying they now owe me about \$145k plus interest, and are prepared to write me a check, but they know this raises some tax issues for me.

Do I ask for a raise? My long-term contract is being renewed for the second time, and for the second time on the "same terms", i.e. no increase in my hourly rate. I'm torn between asking for a raise because "I should" - my role and responsibilities have expanded greatly over time - and accepting the offer because, well, I'm not going to leave over this and based on my cursory knowledge of similar positions elsewhere I'm still paid competitively. And I don't want to make a fuss.
