About a two months ago a co-worker and I caught our superior embezzling money from the company. After consideration, we approached our boss and told him the whole story.
Our superior quit immediately. Since he left, his responsibilities fell on my co-worker and myself. We now do his job as well as our own.
We work in the export industry, and November - March is our busiest time of the year, where our monthly turnover gets to about $1.5m.
Myself and my co-worker now do all the work (except for the marketing manager who sells the products); we procure, do admin, financing, logistics, etc.
When payday came we were quite excited, thinking we would get a nice raise with all the extra workload. To our surprise we got a $100 raise.
Meanwhile, our superior who quit came in about four times to tie up a few loose ends. At the end of this month where my co-worker and I got a menial salary, our superior still received a salary - and not just pay for the 4 times he came in, but for the whole month.
We feel that as we have taken up additional responsibilities, we are deserving of a large pay rise than we were given. How do we approach our manager about this?
