I deserve more money!

To the company I work for: I've been working at the same job for 6 years and I'm making only a few cents (5,10,20 cents) an hour more than other employees who have only worked -1 year to 2 years! Why? I know it's not the store manager's or any of my shif

To the company I work for: I've been working at the same job for 6 years and I'm making only a few cents (5,10,20 cents) an hour more than other employees who have only worked -1 year to 2 years! Why? I know it's not the store manager's or any of my shift managers' faults (I am on good terms with them without being a "suck-up", and I KNOW if it were up to them, I'd be making a shitload more than my co-workers). I work my ass off, not to mention I am well-liked (there may be some who DON'T like me personally, but it's guaranteed I'm more liked there then those particular individuals are) as a worker and as a person. But I have found another way to earn what I'm really worth: I get my meals for free (even though I'm not supposed to), and I don't do the particular tasks I don't want to do (other employees do 'em), and I'll do my tasks the way I want to do them. That's life, company-owner, if you want me to do it your exact way, then pay me more! Yeah, sure you don't have enough money (dripping sarcasm)....
