I'm not a go-getter either. My ambitions have always been in non-work areas. But I've still managed to grow my income the way FMF has, with big raises surrounded by small raises, and this year, no raise.

If both the sisther-in-law and brother-in-law are happy, then things could be worse.

Those large disparities in income are often the results of gender-based pay discrimination. Your sister-in-law was probably getting underpaid in her previous position while your brother-in-law was not.

I learned that a co-worker with the same job was making $10K more than me; he's male, I'm female. But when layoffs loomed, I'm the one who kept her job...he was more expendable, partly due to the higher cost of keeping him.

Lots of people are getting pay cuts today- the big pay rises are the exception to the rule.
