I Hate Work...in The Face!

I think work sucks! I got a huge shaft here...has anyone else had this similar experience? You're an hourly employee, everyone tells you what a great job you are doing. People complement you all of the time and your begin to get recognition, then the higher-ups call you in for a meeting. In this meeting you are told what a fantastic job you are doing, how you deserve to be in a leadership role and that they'd like to offer you a managing type position with "more pay". Sounds great right? I thought so, too. I got this "pay raise" and put on, wait for it... "SALARY" (AKA, you are free labor after 40 hours and will actually end up getting paid less per hour than you were before your "pay raise"). Happened to you before?? Here's a clue... NEVER accept this offer, it's a wolf in sheep's clothing. I will never take a salary position again unless it is an outrageous amount of money. I would rather have stayed where I was and gotten paid for the overtime. I rarely have any free time now. I hope this saves this. What are your thoughts about this?
