your not supposed to ask for a raise in this economy everyone knows that D=
Would you people stop relating everything to "these economic times"? Yes, it has been better but it could also be worse. If someone thinks they deserve a raise, he/she should ask for it. A good company values good work even (or especially) in rough times. That way you keep people motivated to work hard.
Firing someone because he asked for a raise is simply stupid. If you want to/have to fire 35 people, you fire those where it is beneficial to let them go. If you don't want to give someone a raise, you just say no.
By the way, if a company is letting people go, it's always to have more money (well, duh) - in most cases not necessarily because you can't afford the employees anymore but because you have found a way to make it more cost-efficient.
It makes more sense to let the people only work half time than to fire them. This way you don't have to spend money afterwards to train new employees.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
