Well if you felt you weren't getting paid what you deserved, then this might have been a good thing. Just gotta find a new job and work even harder at it :D
You should never have to ask for a raise. Ideally, if they notice your hard work AND the company can afford it, they will give you a raise. If they fired OP, the most likely explanation is OP wasn't a good employee. Or, there is also the possibility they could just be assholes in which case OP is better off.
Don't feel too bad OP, I went in to ask for a raise at my old job and the very next day, I got fired because the company didn't have enough work for all the employees. In reality the boss was a cokehead and the company was imploding. Now I have a great job making much more than I could have asked for there. Good luck OP.
Were you fired for asking or was he gonna fire you anyway? Anyway, I wish you good luck in finding a respectable job that'll pay you well!
