Work, Work, Work

It has happened eight of the past nine work days. The boss has called right at quitin' time with an 'emergency' project that HAS to be completed TONIGHT or the world will end. Who told this bozo that my world revolves around him. I show up on time, or early. I take short lunch breaks. I work an extra half day every week (five years runnin') 'cause he's too cheap to hire someone to work part-time. Don't get any extra pay for the extra hours cuz I'm salaried. Havn't had a raise in six years - despite the fact that I have PERSONALLY brought the company from the brink of bankruptcy to a huge profit the past three years. I'm making nearly $6000 less per year than the average sales person in my industry - and less than half of what the average manager makes. Why do I hang in there? I love what I do. Despite this, I just may have to make a career change soon. There are very few positions available in my area in my profession. I may have to go back into retail. DAMN!!! I simply can't afford to stay. Does anyone care? I have asked for a raise at least twice a year. I asked for some kind of pay for performance package. What did I get? NUTIN HONEY.
What is your beef at work? Is your boss screwin'you in the wallet? Or is he just screwin' you?
