      Thank you for the comment and the facebook post! πŸ™‚ Yes I noticed, he’s tweeting about Hong Kong… I’m hoping I get a chance to go to Beijing for work soon (fingers crossed), which would, now that you mention it, really benefit from a short stop in Hong Kong πŸ˜€

    I would like your help, I’m working in a company that are loosing money like the others in the world and I have to increase the salarys next year…give me something to laugh about please… What can I say to the employees? most of them are making a good job but there is no way to give them an increase.
    I’m trying you!

  • Jason Li says:

    Hmmm, I don’t really have anything funny to say. I don’t think anyone should be expecting a raise in salary this/next year — most people I’ve spoken to have taken a step down (job at 80% time and/or money, taking jobs that pay less well, jobs using skills they don’t normally use, or the best case scenario is same job but no raise).

    So I’d say, just be honest, acknowledge that the company’s losing money; they should then understand the situation. Because at the end of the day, they’re part of a company that’s losing money, and they chose to join and stay there.

    About this site

    There’s a lot of hype around the recession, often in all the wrong places. With this strip, I hope to burst some of those bubbles and help us laugh at ourselves a little bit. If you want to know more about who's behind this, have a look at my slightly-outdated website. Oh and we were interviewed by BBC Radio Five Live's Pods & Blogs back in 2009 and featured on ShortFormBlog from September 2009 to May 2010.
