I work for the ministry of defence, and have worked there for about 12 years now. but as with most employers, there are different levels of pay for different jobs…
2 years ago i got a promotion at work, and as stupid as this might seem to some of you…..well most of you……i didnt even REALISE my wages didnt go up. i think this was because of the economy and pay freezes we have had etc, so i just dint realise.
then this morning i got my wage slip…..with extra money on it and wondered why? ok it was nice to have it but if it was a mistake, they would take it back, so i needed to know where it had come from.
I rang my wages dept who told me that when i was promoted, they ‘forgot’ to update my pay scale, and this was 2 years worth of backpay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this could not have come at a better time with getting married. this will help soooooo much, to pay for lots of things. i have my eye on lots of stuff i didnt think we could afford, but i definately gonna have it now.
