Writer’s Block: Perks of the Job

In this economic climate, not all employers are able to give raises. What perks would make you happy in lieu of a raise?

Hmm, I suppose it would depend on the situation.

I’m not a greedy person. As far as money goes in life, all I want is enough not to have to worry. So to me the idea of a pay raise has more to do with the cost of living then anything else. As far as a raise in the sense of a reward or something like that, I think a nice(r) discount on company products/services or if available, or a bonus paid in shares of stock in the company or offering the shares at much lower cost would be quite nice. Well, assuming the companies stock was worth something >_>

The ability to spend some of my paid time either working on things that interest me specifically (example: learning a new skill) or some of my vacation time counting as paid time, would be nice.

Even more so actually, because I almost never get to have a vacation, even as a kid I rarely had vacation time lmao.

Pay me enough to get through life without fighting to pay essential bills
Treat me with respect, not like a dog (I’m a human!!!)
Family comes first, job second: period
Let me grow — I love to learn

With all of that from a job, I probably would sleep at my work station every now and then if necessary lol, let along care about perks offered :.

Now if someone would just pay me for using my head……
