Denying Star Worker's $30k Raise Ends Up Costing Company $3M Contract

It's really not that hard guys, pay your workers for doing good work or suffer the consequences.

It seems to be a running theme in workplaces around the world - bosses are more than happy for you to "prove yourself" and bust your a-- for them but the minute you come back with any request to move up, suddenly there's no room in the budget even after gloating on company calls about what a great year "we" (they) had.

It's an age-old maxim but one that doesn't seem to have sunk in at most jobs: workers don't quit jobs, they quit bosses. More often than not, losing an employee and having to replace them mid-project will cost significantly more money than it would have to just pay the employee fairly for their hard work - the math bears this out most of the time so I'm hard-pressed to believe that it's a "business decision" to make progress so difficult. This story from Reddit user u/tcrambo is a perfect example of that.
