Sarah: Mr. Smith, I have been doing some industry research and was shocked to learn that the average salary for a position that is similar to mine pays on average $2,000 more per year than I am currently making.
Mr. Smith: What are you basing this infomp3ation on?
Sarah: First and secondary research. I hope that you can address this concern immediately as i find it very disturbing.
Mr. Smith: Yes, I will. We are very happy with your perfomp3ance and want to continue our good working relationship.
Sarah: I wish the same. As such, I hope you will seriously consider a pay increase.
Mr. Smith: Let me take this up with the Director and get back to you immediately.
