I would guess that would not need to cite resources when I say that prices are going up across the board in fuel, food and other day to day necessities. So, I ask a question:
Has anyone used this time of increasing prices to ask their 'employer' for a raise in order to keep up with basic living costs? If so, what was the resulting response of your effort and how did it make you feel?

talk to your boss about telecommuting. If they can't give you a raise, that will reduce your monthly expenditures.
