That is one way to look at it...but a smart company also rewards good employees with advancement that want to advance. I have spent 7 years working a ton of hours each week doing everything in my power to save the company money and streamline everything in my department. I was in a salary position for 18 months before COVID and I never worked less than 50 hours a week during that time. Now I typically work 60 hours a week in my current roll. When the oil field crashed in 2014, I picked up the slack and operated a shop all by myself when my mechanics were all let go. Thankfully I kept my job, but I busted my butt turning wrenches all day and managing parts inventory. I have proven that I have the skills to manage and I want to be higher on the food chain.Isn't that what a good company would do?
I would think they would make decisions that benefit the company.
I wouldn't be angry at their decision if the reason was to benefit the company.
Once again, it isn't about the pay. Of course everyone wants to make more money, and a pay increase would be awesome...but I want to be home more.
