This Is How We'd Like to Ask for a Raise
NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- Some employees tiptoe around asking for a raise, but not the legendary cartoonist Al Hirschfeld.
After publishing his portraits in The New York Times for nearly four decades, Hirschfeld learned that the paper's accounting department disputed a 50-cent charge he'd put on his expense report for a previous assignment. This episode frustrated him so much that he sent a letter to an editor at the paper in 1962 strongly requesting more money for his work.
