I’ve been trying to get a promotion for over a year.
One of my coworkers threatened to quit (a male) and they said he had skills that were valuable and gave him a $12,000 raise in 3 days of asking. When I asked when my raise was going to happen, and if I needed to threaten to quit in order to get a raise (jokingly) I was told that my position is easily replaceable. That they would think about it. How do you not get angry? How do you move forward and actually get the fair pay? He doesn’t have a university degree and I have a university degree, a masters degree and I’m 2 years into my PhD. Someone level with me please. What do I do?
