I hope he is banking a lot of his extra earnings.Not as much as he should, but he is improving, especially when he gets overtime. We have that conversation regularly. He may need to go through a famine to fully "get it".He gets so much out of the "attaboys" and praise from his supervisor that he settles for less pay that he should be getting, or so his supervisors tell him--they say his pay rate is lower than it should be and they promise to do something about it, but it doesn't ever seem to happen. And he likes his company too much to go somewhere that would pay more. We've had conversations about IMO, they'll pay him what he's willing to work for, and if he's willing to work for less than industry standards, why would they offer more*, but...it's his job, not mine. That's not the trade's fault, that's his personality. And right now, as a single guy, no kids, and a roommate, his needs aren't that much. He gets a decent per deim and shares a hotel room w/kitchen during the week, and he and the guys he works with do a lot of cooking instead of eating out. *if my perception of that is wrong, let me know. I don't understand trade pay scales at all. It feels like they can pay whatever they want, but I could be wrong.cm
