No one received a 3% raise. Maybe if you were T4?

Thanks for the comments guys. I just referred a guy and will be waiting for my referral $$ and then probably start applying and hearing other firms out. 3% and a high performer...doesn’t sound right.

Some places won’t pay out a referral until they’ve been there 6 months. Might wanna check on that
