Hello MR, Looking for advice as I'm in a dilemma. Let's get started. I work in a chemistry lab in Canada. I have an 8 month contract position and my contract expires in one month. I test client samples with various laboratory equipment. Anyways, the person who trained me to do the job quit and I am lined up to take their place with a full time position (employer has told me this). They did not sign me right away even though I am doing the exact same job this person was doing previously. They had an online job posting for the position to which I applied and they decided to do no interviews. Because of this, it has been noted I will get the position when my contract ends. The way I saw it was, they wanted to pay me as little as possible until they had to give me a raise (however big or small). I sucked it up. This was about 3 months ago. Fast forward to now. We just got some co-op students from local colleges and I am training them how to do the jobs I do and how to use the equipment I use. I was talking to a guy I've gotten to know pretty well (he plays D3, so we've been playing together) etc and have become friends and he told me how much they are paying him. Summary so far: Me: - 8 month contract position looking to move into the full-time position - 4 year university degree (completed) - No relevant work experience other than the 7 months I have been in my current position - training current co-op students Them: - 8 month co-op contract position looking to go back to school once finished - 3 year college diploma (in progress) - No relevant work experience - being trained by me Last month I got a $0.50/hr raise but from the sounds of it everybody in the building got this same raise. Even the co-op students who hadn't even started working there yet. They hadn't stepped through the door yet and they were granted the same raise I had been given. In that raise letter my job title also got raised from "Lab Analyst Level 0 to level 1" (lolololol). I'm mentioning this because sometimes people new to the company make the same as others with the same job title. I can only assume their job title didn't change (they hadn't spent even an hour in the lab yet). Also, it works out that if they didn't get the raise like I did, they would still be making more than me (with me getting the raise). I'm not the type of person to complain and whine about life being unfair but this has struck me as being completely unfair. I'm getting married in 3 months so I'm looking to make as much as possible to support myself and my wife on our own and I can't settle for something that would be hard to live off of. I have the best interests of two people in mind now. I'm planning on talking to my manager but I'm unsure of what would be a good thing to say or how to phrase it. My manager is a nice guy so I'm not afraid to talk to him. Anyone experience a similar situation? What can I do? I feel cheated.
