i rejected a raise
Brazil AintGoingAnywhere 
I rejected a raise and told my boss most people at our company are overpaid (a bank). I'm actually ashamed of earning what i earn, so i couldn't bare earning like 20x what a garbage man or any other more difficult and more worthy job. You can offend me as much as you want, i'm not ashamed of refusing a raise, just ashamed of my work. Thoughts?

why would you reject a raise at a bank LOL. If its not going to you, then its going to your boss. Its not a charity. Fake and gay 1/8

What he's trying to tell you is that he has what he needs from the salary he already makes. Hence the reason to reject a raise.

That's true. But morality is subjective, and he might just feel it's wrong to get more money for the type of work he does. So instead of choosing something that would make him feel more guilt, he rather chooses this option to make him feel better about himself. So it sounds more like he's trying to cure his "shame" by making this decision.
2019-12-09 13:20
still morality bruv. morality is all about making decisions when you know your choice won't make any difference for anyone else.
2019-12-10 02:38
Imo I'd take the money and dedicate it to something. If you don't care for earning more, but you do want money to go into the right pockets, the only way you can make sure that happens is by having the money and giving it to causes/people that deserve it in your eyes. The money will now instead go to people who are very unlikely to do that. Your choice at the end of the day though.

Why? The Bank wont do anything for the garbage men, you could have done something for them.
2019-12-08 23:32
It's not like i'm trying to be an altruistic person by refusing it, it just seems like the just thing to do - even though i'm not helping them.
2019-12-08 23:35
you're just helping the shitty bank. just take the raise and donate it somewhere if you don't feel you're worth it.

Fake because even if you didn't need it yourself, you could've donated it to charity or garbage men. Also a bank which literally makes money off poor people (interest on loans) sort of aligns with what you are against and you reject the raise? Fake asf
2019-12-08 23:47
At no point i said i'm against banks - i find their activity with moral grounds - since you're not obligated to take loans. What i said is that i earn more than i deserve, and more than other people should earn.

Ok but pitying garbage men for low pay and being ok with banks loaning out other people's money and charging interests on poor people (basically enslaving them for life) is illogical
2019-12-08 23:56
I don't pity garbage men, i just think they should earn more. It's not an emotional reaction, it's a logical one: i do too little for what i earn, they do too much for what they earn. If you take a loan from a bank, it's your own fault and period (that includes garbage men who take loans). Banks don't enslave anyone who choose not to take loans from them. If you know it's too expensive, just don't take loans - we all can live simple lives. With my pay, in Brazil, i could have a pretty expensive car and home (for brazilian standards), but i live in a small and simple apartment, 25 square metter. But, if someone want to have a brand new iphone and a brand new car without affording it, he/she deserves to be paying high rates to a bank, since it gave him the opportunity to gain time and have what he wants in advance.
2019-12-09 00:00
and how do you expect people without housing to afford housing on lower salary? I understand the business plan of a bank but your reasons doesn't hold water.

2019-12-09 00:22
It's proven that, financially, it's better to live on rent - at least in Brazil.
2019-12-09 00:22
In my city you can't even rent a place for min. wage. Renting tiny apartments starts at around 1300EUR + electricity etc.
2019-12-09 00:25
So it's a different context there.
2019-12-09 00:25
It's factual that people in general, independent of location has less money leftover if they rent which in return makes your living condition worse. Now I don't know Brazil but if the interest rate is so high that you're better off renting then that's criminal and you should take every raise possible (as the bank won't notice any difference at all) and give it to the less fortunate ones.
2019-12-09 00:30
In our culture (probably a lot of other countries as well) people have tendency to showoff expensive stuff, iPhone is a good example. So, instead of planning themselves (financially) they usually throw their money away with useless stuff. But as every rule, there are exceptions. Some people work very hard, and yes, a lot of them make a mortgage on a bank (the rates are very high here, insanely high). But, since i work on a bank, i show most people i know how bad it is to buy a house, and give them investing advices (our bonds are very good investments), and some stocks as well. Even though i know my money will go to banks (the ones that ask for those high rates), that is not the point. I refused because of me, it does not seem just FOR ME. I can't say about the banks... About charity, i made a comment on #37 about it.
2019-12-09 00:34
Well here (not living in HK anymore) the reason many rent is simply because the real estate prices are through the roof (mainly the big cities) so there's no way for young people without being lucky or rich family to get enough capital to request a loan at all. My friend "tricked" the system though. He got 40K in student loan which he put on a separate account. In turn for completing his bachelor the state would remove 40% of the sum he owed (before the rate) and only pays around 2.7% interest on the remaining money. After he worked for 6 months (typically required to prove that you have a stable job) he used the 40K + whatever he managed to save from work to take a loan and bought a nice af apartment.
2019-12-09 00:51
This. Do random acts of charity with the extra money you feel you don't actually need. Refusing them is just giving back to the people you allegedly despise.
2019-12-09 00:22
Given how much of a pos you are from your posts, i would say there is no way you would have such noble moral principles :p.

I can understand you point of view, but I think that you should have taken the money Cause the raise you won't get will remain in the capital of the bank, whereas it could have belonged to you, a person with convictions, who could have potentially done good things with it

Pretty stupid. If you truly felt that way you could just take the extra money and use it to do some good. It's not like you refusing that money is helping anyone in any way
2019-12-08 23:49
It's not my vocation. This is the first time i'm telling this (cause you're a bunch of unknown people), so it's not like i'm trying to brag or seem morally superior: i pay lunch for a homeless woman and her child from monday to friday. That's as much as i can do, anything else i have no idea how to help. I've tried donating to charities (a place where they take care of really old people), but when i asked for the accounting statements they declined, showing something was wrong. I don't live in a country where you can trust people, so i honestly don't know how to help people. At least i can help myself to sleep better at night by realising i'm overpaid and that i don't deserve it.

I don't think i'm depressed, just frustrated really. I do have time to study and read, which are things i like doing, so it's not like all i do is work. But the times i'm there, a feeling of being pathetic comes to me, and nobody else there have this same view.
