so as you may or may not know, I work with my dad at a print shop that he owns as a graphic designer. I've been doing it for about 4 years now and am pretty good at it from a technical standpoint, to the point where techs that work for Canon call me to help them sort out problems they can't solve and soforth.

Anyways, our business has been growing pretty rapidly over the last year and today it was decided that we would be hiring a second person to help me out and eventually replace me as I move out of production and into management.

We hired a person today. She is fresh from school. She makes more than I do.

    Your dad has to offer a high salary to attract quality workers. Your dad is in essence giving you a guaranteed job for life.

    yeah I'm trying not to be too sore about it, but like, I am getting paid just barely enough to scrape by. If my girlfriend wasn't pulling in the big bucks I'd be living in their basement still.

    I mean damn.

    You should move back to their basement with your girlfriend. Then you guys can save the money you would spend on rent!

    I mean, don't get me wrong, much of the time I love my job, and I like to think I've gotten pretty good at it in a short time.

    But because I'm the owner's son, and my dad is such a nice guy, like to a fault nice sometimes, anything he's mad about, whether it's because of me or not, I take the brunt of. And now this.

    Get a fella to feel a bit unappreciated sometimes.

    Sounds like he'd have to pay another person quite more than what he's already paying you to get someone to do your job, not even counting the amount of time it would take to possibly train them in the business.

    Use that to your advantage.

    I mean, it's family, so you should be able to talk about this subject more easily than say a boss you only know through work who is much older than you. Then again, family and money are two things that don't mix well sometimes.

    I say, ask for a raise, because not only do you deserve it, but you'd love to not struggle out on your own. If in the end, your "boss" doesn't care, you could search for another job. Someone calling your dad for a job reference could wake him up.

    well I just got off the phone with him... I feel very very small right now.

    Turns out he's been taking no salary for the last couple pay periods because he makes enough off of some other investments he has so he can sink that money back into the business and hire some much needed help.

    He also said I definitely deserve more and as soon as there is more cash flow he intends to give me a raise.

    very very small.

    Well if you were being a dick, you should feel that way, but if you were asking an honest question you're just being rough on yourself.
