Why would you point out that he'd have to pay more anyway if he hired someone else? You're pretty much arrogantly demanding for a raise because that's his only option anyway, not asking. Next time you ask for a raise, back it up by pointing out how your previous and current contributions to the company have made you a valuable asset to the company.

The poster said to his boss "you might as well give me a raise because anyone else you hire will get paid more anyway". This basically gave a golden ticket to the boss to fire him.

#28 that's not necessarily true. at-will does mean OP can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all but even with at-will employment if you're terminated without just cause you can sue for unemployment and win

#36 - Your two statements contradict each other. "Can be terminated for no reason at all" means that they don't have to have a valid reason to fire you. If the boss is simply displeased with you, they can fire you.

That may be true, but this is the absolute worst time of year to be worried about being fired/looking for a new job. OP should have waited til the new year to ask for a raise, because end-of-year bookkeeping and "house cleaning" makes things more stressful for management. Ill timed for sure and unfortunately timing is everything... Sorry OP!
