We actually have raises! If I remember my starting salary correctly, my pay has exceeded inflation, though my skill and value to the company have increased in that time.
I'm not bothered by the fact if changing the coffee. The reason behind the budget squeeze isn't hidden and seems reasonable to me. What bothered me was the tone. They tried to spin it like a benefit. I think it was just one over stimulated person in the facilities group and not a trend, but we'll see.
