Earn more: Ask for more

Where I worked the past few summers, there is a “summer wage cap” determining the maximum amount a person can be paid during July and August. Last summer I was making less than this cap, so I asked for and received the difference ($2,800) with no hassle.

If there is a maximum amount you can possibly be paid, ask for the maximum.

I told several colleagues about this, and, as far as I know, everyone who asked for the full summer wages got the increased wages approved immediately.
