I am the director of a department at work. I found out a few months ago that an employee that reports to me gets paid more than I do. How do I bring this up to my manager? I’m looking now to ask for a raise.

Personally I would not bring up your pay in relation to someone that works for you. I’d do research as to what is market value for what you do, and discuss what you bring to the table (especially if it’s above and beyond what you were hired to do). Clients you’ve brought in, money you’ve saved, huge projects you’ve taken on, money you’ve made the company, etc.
