Told my boss that I have accepted a new job offer. Reason I’m leaving is because my current salary is laughable and on top of that no benefits after working there for 5 years. So now all of a sudden he wants to match what they’re offering me. Makes me think he could have given me that raise a long time ago.

of course they could’ve given it to you before. did you ask before? before, did you ask how you should get it? it’s a business: unless they have to, they’re not gonna seek out to pay people more. if i were you, i’d probably still leave, especially if you like the new job better.

then i’d say it’s on you for waiting so long. again, you should leave.

Has the blush come off the rose for this shining city on a hill? Have any other foreign fish in the US been asking yourself why we made the conscious decision to seek out a life in this country? The racial tensions and frequent shootings (including a much covered grocery store that I used to frequent) are outweighing the benefits of staying here. Never have I had to worry this much about going to the grocery store. The reaction of society here towards these issues is also dismal. Is it worth it?
