If you feel you deserve one then good for you for asking. If you're a loyal employee and actually do your job then it will suck for your boss if he actually let's you go.

I agree with #16, if OP is doing what is expected and going "above and beyond" from time to time.. it makes for a much happier boss! Plus, I feel like bosses know when they're being sucked up to.

Agreed. If you're a good worker, and worth the compensation you asked, based on your skill, experience and industry standards. There shouldn't be too much difficulty finding a new niche for yourself, in such a circumstance.

Whoops! Let me correct myself, since I didn't catch my error in time to edit my previous comment. I didn't notice that it said OP is from Austria. Since I do not know their laws, my comment may be null and void.

Don't know the labor laws in Austria but I doubt they're like they are here in the states. Where you can be totally useless and still keep your job as long as you show up on time and don't break any rules.

If you're "totally useless" though you can't keep your job. You have to actually be doing your job. If you're not doing it right then it doesn't matter if you show up on time, you can be fired. Those laws are just to protect people from getting fired for really stupid reasons, like the boss just doesn't like the person for no real reason. (Which does happen)

Here in Brazil, the boss can fire you for whatever reason if he wants, but if he doesn't have a valid one, he has to pay you a compensation. So bosses will usually think twice before firing people randomly. Unfortunately, though, that also leads to bosses making their employees lives as hellish as they can without breaking the contract in order to try and get them to quit by themselves instead so they won't have to pay...

In austria you can get fired for nothing and it's called "aus wirtschaftlichen Gründen" which translates into: 'because of economic reasons' which really sucks! Best of luck OP.
