We received some interesting news about my husband’s new job placement. I was on an excited countdown toward a large pay increase but things have changed.
He is not being transferred.
He was called in for a meeting with his boss and was asked to stay in his current position. If he chooses to stay, he will receive a permanent pay increase – a much smaller increase than the transfer position – and possibly a promotion.
He will not be paid prevailing wage but the increase is permanent rather than temporary and the promotion is a big one.
For our future, staying put in his current position is a better choice, but for now, I’m a bit bummed at not hitting the jackpot of debt reduction.
We’ll find out the specifics of his pay increase this week. Fingers crossed!
