    Every time a government worker gets a raise the rest of us have to pay more in taxes. How fair's that. How about all government workers take a pay cut which then gives the rest of us get a pay raise. Sounds fair to me.

    You should work for free.

    That way the executive in your company can make more money.

    They need it.

    You don't.

    Never. I get paid the same fee as I did when I started 7 years ago. Oh wait, now I get to print my own forms too. Yipee.

    Depends how hard the whips flaying, which makes me work faster, which gives me a raise.

    I gave myself a big raise this year. Quit my job, became a private consultant, and now I make 3X as much. No complaints here.
