Discussion on: Should I ask for a raise?

Something I have learned in my career is that you can always ask for a raise without it leaving your supervisors feeling like you will become a malcontent if you say no.

I always frame the question like this: "In order to reach my financial goals for me any my family, I would like to be making X dollars right now. What do you think I can do for you in order to provide that much value for the company?"
