Posted 3/21/2020 08:13 (#8124830) Subject: Right time to ask for a raise
My wife works at the largest hospital in our part of the state. She's a nurse's technician (cna).
She doesn't really need the work, (the wages aren't that high to begin with) but as a family the largest value there is the health insurance package. Her floor, her specific unit has been designated as the Covid-19 unit, which I think is unusual work for them - they aren't a respiratory unit or have any special skills for the virus.
Would it be an inappropriate time for her to request a raise? Or at least some sort of extra hazard type pay until her unit isn't designated for Covid19 cases or until it blows over?
