Remember to do the math on hours worked vs dollars paid. 40k raise isn't such a good deal if you are workings 60hrs vs 40hrs as week. The taxes make it worse and those extra hours are incremental more valuable.

Heh. I've been employed for more than 30 years.

My employers get the hours they pay for. They get me, fully, for those hours. I don't screw around, and I produce excellent work, consistently. So they get what they pay for.

(Note: I'm happy to stay as late as necessary, once in a while, when the project actually warrants it. But if the expectation is "free work", they can fuck right off.)
