I work for Goodwill Industries and am told we get our raises

Customer Question

I work for Goodwill Industries and am told we get our raises ONLY thru the Labor Board. I work at Randolph AFB as a Clerk III contractor and our management get raises every year and the last raise we ever had was in 2008 and Obama taxed us in 2008 and we ended up with less money than before the raise, we do NOT even get cost of living raises, this is not fair at all.

Added:: our management is also contract and Goodwill gives them raises they had one about 5 months ago it was 23 cents but they get raises, management said if the Labor Board changes our title (Clerk III) that is the only way we will see a raise???? it has been 8 years and nothing. My paycheck has actually gone down in the last 8 years, from approx. $998.00 to as of now $911.00
