What would you do if you got a decent raise?

What would you do if you got a decent raise?

Twenty Techs from the West Bank info meeting talked about what they'd do if they got a decent wage increase this time...

 

- Buy a pair of shoes with soles that didn't flap

- Pay off some bills

- Pay into taxes due

- Buy healthier food

- Buy some clothes (at rummage sales)

- Try to save something for retirement

- Fix a 17-year old car

- Fix a leaky roof

- Buy a new bike - can't afford a car

- Buy an air conditioner

- Not work three jobs

- I would not have to fret about paying for day care

- I could pay for the new health insurance

- Maybe start saving?

- Pay for deductibles and co-pays (until March, when I'll be wiped out)

- Seems like it's never really a raise - what we get in raises goes back to health insurance and parking

 

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU GOT A DECENT RAISE?

MORE IMPORTANLY - WHAT WILL YOU DO TO *GET* THAT DECENT RAISE?
