A victim of the financial downturn...

So I have been a victim of the financial downturn. No, I have not lost my job or anything like that, but we have frozen all salaries at my office, so that means no raises this year. We did get the same bonuses as last year, which I know is better then nothing and better then what a lot of people have gotten.

Frankly, I agree with my boss 100% to freeze salaries. No one knows what is going to happen with our economy and really right now things do not seem to be getting any better. I am not sure they are getting any worse, but really I do not see this turning around for a while.

Would I have loved to make more money, sure. But I also love my job and frankly if I have to keep making the same money to help insure that I have a job (and a company to work for) well then I will do that. Things will turn around at some point and when they do, I know my boss will give us all raises. Until that time, I will will keep doing the best damn job that I can and I know that my coworkers will do the same thing too.
