the one good thing they did was break the vote into regions, so its not a statewide pass or fail, but I am estimating about half of the regions they set up will pass..
I dont know what Washington is doing with the Federal Motor Fuel Tax, but it doesnt appear to be coming to Georgia...

Before that err...a while but I've also been laid off and moved (3 different jobs) over the past 4 years.

Anyway, if you feel you are underpaid or deserve a raise, make it known. Don't assume someone knows that you are troubled by your current salary or the fact that you haven't had a raise in however long. From my research, industry is slowly picking back up and companies are becoming more profitable again. They need to pass that on to the valuable employees that are contributing to that profitability.

Just to be clear here ... when you type b.u.m.p. it does that stupid emoticon; no idea how to turn it off.
3 years has been the longest I have gone without a in pay; 2007-2010 were pretty rough. Market definitely has changed (for the better) based upon the movement of people between companies and the number of new jobs coming through the doors in recent months.

The thing is, i want to stay in the area and it isn't exactly a hotbed for mechies.
If i didn't get a raise for two straight years, my resume would be getting some mileage.

There seem to be lots more civil related openings in Texas, San fransisco, and north east, or at least that's what it's showing on the typical sites...

I would love Colorado, my wife can't take the 40 degree winters here in Georgia though...
I can understand, I love snow, but am scared of Virginia after living in the AL/GA area.... switched the heat pump to cool today!!!

I had a job offer but asked for them to cover my commute expence, that ended that discussion, My current commute is 10 m door to door. I need alot more money if I am going to spend 2hr+ in the car for another job.

Longest I went was 1.5yrs. but compensation was just above the national avg. so didn't mind much. Soon after, was laid off and found a new company that wanted to pay a new PE fatty stacks so I accepted (PE probably helped that) which was a nice "raise". Our reviews are in summer, update to come. I concur w/ previous recommendations about looking elsewhere, there's always a greener pasture. I my case I needed to get laid off to know it's true.
Which reminds me: "No matter how hot she is, some guy out there is sick and tired of putting up with her $h!t"
