Has anyone ever asked their boss for a pay raise? With the cost of living going up every day and gas prices on the rise its getting harder and harder to make ends meet.  I am putting away less money every week into my savings account.  So in actuality, my weekly pay is less in comparison to the rise in the cost of living.  So, am I entitled to a raise?  How do you professionally ask your boss without looking desperate?

Make a list of all the contributions you have made to the company which has (a) increased efficiency (b) reduced costs and (c) added to the general improvement of the company. If after making your list you can confidently say to your boss you're a more than worthy employee you should be able to bring that list in with you (not literally of course!), thereby making it about your merit and not your need.

Depending on your boss this may or may not work. (the statement just ahead of mine). I tried that and the only reply I received was a bad attitude and a lot of abuse making me end up quitting.
