The fiscal year for Y's work begins July 1. I hadn't heard if he had gotten a raise so I was asking over the weekend. He realized that he hadn't heard either. This raise would be just a cost of living raise but we expected something.
He checked it out today and he is getting a 3% raise. It will be about $120 gross per month. It's not a huge amount but every little bit helps.
Definitely better than a Polk in the eye. :)
