13. I got caught in that trap during the last raise

I started at 6.15 and 3 years later after being named employee of the quarter (twice) I made 7.25/hr. OK goes up to 7.29 so the next person hired made as much as me. There was nothing to do other than look for a new job and start over - again. The next job paid that 7.29 min AND gave me $1/hr extra for experience, I came out ahead in the long run. OK is always near the last to do anything, I expect it might be another 10 years before we see the min wage raised again.
