When I was hired at my job, I asked for $21 an hour. My boss said, "I will give you $19 an hour for the first 90 days, and if things go well, I will bump you up to $21 an hour." I agreed.
Since that time, I had a no-call, no-show absence due to confusion when trading shifts with a coworker. I also have 5 (minor) tardies coming back from lunch. I feel like I work harder than others at my new job and deserve some increase in pay, even with my attendance issues.
Do you think it would be smart to calculate my total hours lost to attendance and ask my boss for a raise based off of a percentage of my attendance?
So if,in 90 days, I've worked 720 total hours, and missed 8 hours (absent) and 5 tardies (10 min X 5 days = 50 minutes) That would mean I've worked about 711 total hours. It seems like I should be able to figure out a percentage cut of time that I have missed equivalent to the percentage of time missed. How would i calculate this?
I also imagine my boss will make an incalculable argument for "problems stemming from time missed." Could I argue for a percentage off the total days? How would I calculate this and present it to my boss in an appropriate way?
