Hi all, Work for manufacturing industry. Times are tough and company was barely a float for 7 years. Now a new company has bought us out and I am transitioning at my same pay. Should I ask for more money? They have reviews every jan/Feb. Is it better to wait and show my self worth til than?

I'm in the same situation the company just sold out to a larger company, I have been with the company for 6 years.... I have moved up into managment and the company keeps saying hang in there when times get better you will get a raise. So know that a new company owns it should I ask for more money that was promised to me.

No, you should find you a better job making more money! Dont settle for less that what you're worth. 7 years no raise, start looking for better. Min wage at about 15.00 an hr in some places! Do better!

Ash Gajjar , this may be your moment! I would definitely feel the situation out first and prepare by thinking deeply on the ways you have grown and taken on more responsibility within the last seven years. When you speak to your manager about this, make sure to place more emphasis on your contributions than the amount of time since your last raise.
