Any suggestions on how to ask for a raise. I work for a company for almost 4 years each year we get maybe 20cents an hour increase. When new employees start they were making more than me. I asked for a raise and was given 1.00 more than the newer employees (after threading to leave). Now I have far more responsibilities than the employees and have to train just for a 1.00? I wanna ask for raise but don’t want to look greedy. please help!
