Today, my boss asked if I could spare a few minutes to finish off the last of his paperwork backlog. I'm pretty desperate for a raise, so I said sure. Turns out the "small", "should-take-a-few-minutes" backlog consists of 3 desk-high stacks of documents. Goodbye, cruel world. FML

If your boss is treating you like that, I wouldn't be too confident about a possible raise. Might want to look for work outside the office-slave industry

Just think of the raise... Good luck op

harsh man. gotta work for that money

Time for a new job.

If he actually gets one.

If they don't like their job or the wage they receive, they can always find a new job.

Uhh no you can't

Those are usually the ones who don't get a raise! Sad but true!

good luck with that op

Somebody got to do it, right?

Hopefully if it is well done you will be recognized and eventually get the raise you deserve!

It may just be easier to sleep with boss and get a raise that way.

Sucks. But, I think you're right.

Sounds like he's trying to get as much free work out of you as he can.

Depends of the job is salary bases or hourly based.

Depends if there is overtime or not. If the OP is salary or hourly, if they are expected to get the work done in X hours then their pay doesn't change, only the amount of work.

I'm also wondering if his boss only meant a certain amount of files and not all of them. You think he would know that it will take more than a few minutes and that op will figure that out and not do all of it? Although I say this as if op's boss is just your average boss with common sense and not an FML boss who are apparently all crazy and narcissistic slave-drivers.

Sometimes its ok to say no! Having a work/life balance is key!

I'd just keep thinking of the possible raise that could come from getting on the boss' good side. If the odds aren't exactly in your favour, maybe you should quit and find a job that's easier to go up the ranks in.
