Portland?

I would guess in the mid to high 30k range.

Been there 17 years, and you've stayed dedicated for the last 5 without a raise??

You're a Sous? Among how many?

You put in what, 60 or 70 hours a week?

Off hand, I'd say at least 30 to 35% sounds reasonable.

Sounds like you've earned it.

thank mezenplaze, I am the executive sous and those numbers sound about right to me. Really just looking for about $6000 more a year over a period of time....mostly because I've earned it and I also want my wife to be able to go to 3 days a week as she has many health issues. will see?
