We Just Gave Our Employees a Raise
We just gave our employees a raise. Why?
We gave them a raise because they work hard. They work when we need them, they work long days, they work in the heat, their hands get cut, their legs get tired, and their families don't get to spend all of the time they might like to spend with them.
Our employees work hard and they deserve the money they make. We believe in paying them well and we don't think they should shoulder the burden of our state's greedy legislature.
We know that they support families, have expenses, and want to take time off to relax. We want them to have the same capacity to do these things as they did before July 1st.
The state legislature has refused to do anything to make Illinois a business-friendly state. Legislators on both sides of the isle have failed us. They have failed to freeze our already astronomic property taxes, they have failed to reduce taxes on small businesses to encourage growth, they have failed to end bloated entitlement systems, and cut pensions. They have fixed nothing in the two years they have spent in impasse.
We are disgusted with the mis-management of our state. As a business, we understand cash flow. We understand that we must meet our obligations, that our profits must match or exceed our expenditures. We understand that to grow, we must have a stable financial foundation. Illinois legislatures do not understand this. They’ve given up.
We haven’t given up. We’re going to continue to grow using the same principals of customer service and dedication to our customers that got us where we are today. We understand that our employees make our company what it is today
So we calculated the difference and we gave our employees a raise to ensure they made the same now as they did before July 1st.
Share if you agree that employees and their families shouldn't share the burden of a broken state legislature!
