Let's say you're working at this job where they're paying you $20/hour to do 4 different tasks. It's enough to pay your bills, buy groceries, and still have some left over at the end of the month. One day your boss comes up to you and says that they no longer need you to do 4 tasks but just 3 instead with a $5 pay cut. You agree to this, do some financial juggling, and manage to squeak by at the end of the month. Then, a couple months later the company realizes that they still need you to do all 4 tasks so your boss informs you that they need you to do your old job but are still only going to be paying you $15/hour. How do you react to this?
Do you do the job with no complaints even though this extra task adds financial strain without the additional $5/hour? Do you tell your boss that you'd be more than happy to do all 4 tasks but need your full pay or you can't do it? Do you just quit and find another job? Or do you do something else entirely?
