If you really want to succeed get a good education at Trump University. Just can't beat that degree and credentials.
My God,..you are obsessed with the President.
This isn’t even a political thread.

I saw this article on LinkedIn today. Can someone explain this to me?
Would you take a promotion without a raise? 64% of employees said they would, according to a survey by staffing firm OfficeTeam. That’s up from 55% in 2011. Younger workers were more willing, with 72% of 18 to 34 year olds saying they’d take a raiseless promotion and 53% of those 55 and above saying the same. This willingness may be a sign of the times: OfficeTeam found that 33% of HR managers said it was somewhat common to give out no-money promotions, up from 19% in 2011. • Here’s what people are saying.
Everyone else, I think this is a perspective that comes from younger people being screwed by the 2008 collapse of the market that never recovered. This is what has lead to the explosive popularity of Trump and Bernie Sanders. I will admit that the last 2 years things have gotten A LOT better. However I think this speaks volumes to the dire circumstances the market has been in since 2008. People will literally do anything to get ahead including taking promotions with no corresponding increase income.
Now, we all know the unemployement number tends to be BS however if the number is true and there really is that much work then this trend should no longer exist correct?
The laws of supply and demand should come into the equation and if there's not enough people working we should see a corresponding increase in wage growth and incentives that compete for more talented employees if I'm not mistaken.
Just another among dozens of other examples that the lie the media is purporting may not necessarily be true.

When I was young (and skinny!) I went sideways fairly often in my chosen profession, but I always made sure I was rewarded in the move with some other life improvement such as work schedule, time off, shorter work day etc.
However, now that I am old(er) and fat(er) I have the skills, I have the experience and I have the reputation. I have reached the point where I will no longer take on additional responsibilities without increased pay. I have a specific skill set and am very good at what I do. If a company wants that, they can pay what I ask.

New promotion means a new social media post
I heard a story, that for Star Trek, they didn’t have money for raises for everyone, so they gave charachter’s promitions.
Promotion and no raises....good little socialist.
