  •  COLA raises (1+ / 0-)

    ceased, at least in my experiences, in the private sector a decade or more ago.  Step raises, raises of any kind as well.  The only way to achieve a higher income was to change jobs.  That's been real difficult as well over the past decade.  

    Sometimes, being employed is a reward in itself.
