Should I ask for a raise at work?
I have been working at my current job for almost a year, I started as an accounts payable clerk for one of the subsidiaries, but as the months went by I was also put in charge of the NY subsidiary when the accountant was on vacation. They also let go a senior accountant and I am doing her job as well in addition to my other responsibilities, she had a salary of $70,000 and my salary is $35,000, I was also put in charge of purchasing and when an additional staff accountant is out I cover her also. I answer emails from home and stay overtime when needed. I will be graduating from my Bachelor's Degree this year and I am not sure if I should ask for a raise before then... Please help!!!
