Raise is conditional on working more hours - not on performance
I submitted a professional letter for a review of my pay based on my good performance, dependability and increased workload which I am handling in 30 hrs/week. I was told that I would be awarded an increase but that I needed to consider working more hours. I am unable to increase my hours due to other jobs and time that I spend time daily with parent in nursing home. This is why I chose a part-time job to begin with. She said that I wouldn't be getting a raise and that I needed to compromise. I am losing sleep over this and have decided to leave the job, but can't get this scenario off my mind. Is this normal procedure? It seems very strange and unfair to me.
