My brother makes an hourly wage as a delivery truck driver. He’s gotten much more efficient at his job, so he finishes his routes early, and he ended up making less this year than he did his previous year. I’m trying to convince him that he needs to ask for a raise. Is it greedy or what he deserves?

He might be too smart for his job. Could he just take breaks and be inefficient to make what he deserves? Not sure this is an industry that would give raises based on efficiency and merit. Hope I’m wrong and your brother can be recognized. The consultant in me wants to say that he should document the efficient process and start his own consulting firms to sell the process to delivery companies.

To your first question: yes. That’s what his coworkers do. They’re worse at the job but get paid more

Unfortunately most jobs don’t pay for efficiency. He should probably be slower honestly

I would cost out leasing a truck and subcontracting for Amazon. He will make much more even if you factor in a high end insurance plan.

Or if he has a car, Ubering or DoorDash as a side gig!

Facts like I commend him for the efficiency but when you're hourly with a finite amount of work for the day, you drag that mess out for as long as you can. Take lots of breaks, scroll through reddit, grab a meal, hell watch a show lol

I was just given a promotion and the compensation was lower than what I hoped given my external market data research (20k under that) and knowing the midpoint to my previous level (9k under that). I’ve never negotiated a promotion before and was prepared to do it in a way where I shared that I’m extremely grateful and excited for the opportunity but wanted to see if we could discuss the comp. Basically it went the way we fear as women - I was told it makes me look ungrateful.

But because of that, more and more keeps getting added to my plate. Trying to be compassionate, but it seems like they don’t really care they’re not doing a great job - they log off early, don’t always turn in work.

Officially had the worst date of my life. Dude kept saying he’s expecting me to pay for the entire tab (which is nbd really) before we reached the restaurant for dinner and drinks. It was all fun and merry until the check came and the waiter gave the check to him instead of me. Date gets offended and calls waiter a sexist bc “why should men pay all the time?” And angrily gives his credit card 💳. I insist and put my credit card as well and we split the tab. 😂🤣 this was our first and last date. ☺️
