Question: “I am the administrative assistant to the vice president. I have been
with the company four years and recently had a wonderful annual review;
however, the pay increase was not so wonderful. I have researched the
local job service office, and according to its web site, I should be
making about $3.55 more per hour for my position and experience.

let it know I am not being compensated fairly? I have been underpaid
since I began working for the company and my workload continues to
increase.” — Administrative Assistant to VP
