I manage our production team of 5 and about 1/3 of the company's purchasing. The majority of our company, which has about 60 people in all, makes the money we do from what we output from production. I'm 21, dedicated, and basically feel incredibly unappreciated. Not just emotionally at work, but my compensation is dirt next to the other department heads. I understand that I'm young but I'm worried that they don't think I'm worth more than what equates to 12.5/hour full time.
I'm worried that I'll find other work and have to learn a new company culture/flow.
I'm not sure how to make it clear that while I believe "fair" means getting me to do what they want for as little as possible, I can't justify doing so much for what feels like nothing.
Thoughts? Been there? Help. Please.
