Dear Dr. Civitelli,
I would like to ask my boss for a well-deserved salary raise but I am unsure how to approach such a negotiation. Since the economy isn’t doing well, is this a bad time? What would you recommend I say to my boss?
Los Angeles, CA
I was interviewed by Working Mother magazine on salary negotiation during a recession. Read the article for things to consider and what to say if you do decide to approach your boss to ask for a raise.
Hope this helps!
