You are the manager of the packing department. A memo from headquarters announces that the maximum merit salary increase (i.e., a raise when no promotion is involved), is 6%.
You have a subordinate who, you feel, deserves a bigger raise. A year ago, Sheila Whitfield was promoted into the pre-label division of your packing department. She quickly became proficient in her duties – so much so that now others ask her for advice. You especially like her positive approach to solving problems. She sees obstacles as challenges and more often than not figures out ways to do what needs to be done within the constraints provided. On her own initiative, she started a program to make others in the company aware of the expense of labels and shipping to better control costs. The program has been very successful, and the company has saved money while still using clear, informative labels with adequate packaging. She has excellent working relationships with label suppliers and her counterparts in other companies.
In her most recent performance appraisal, Sheila had 14 out of 21 boxes checked “Exceptional” (the other seven were “Commendable”, the next highest category). Her overall ranking was “Exceptional.” Indeed, the only two suggestions for improvement were minor ones:
Continue to be aggressive, but temper the aggressiveness with diplomacy;
Continue to expand responsibility in current position.
Write an email to Phoebe Buffay, the Salary Compensation Committee chairperson, recommending that an exception to the rules be made so that Sheila can be given an 8% raise.
II is when the food started to get a little but better. A lot of the food started to be cooked in field kitchens and started to get “fresh.” There were a lot of different ration packs during WWII. First introduced was the “A-Ration” or “Garrison Ration” which was usually cooked in field kitchens. It consisted of a raspberry drink, cereal, muffin, jam and peanut butter, apple, salt/pepper, and some sort of sandwich based on preference. A bit different type of ration was the “B-Ration” which was canned food, prepared in field kitchens that had no need to be refrigerated. Another ration that the soldiers had during WWII was the “C-Ration.” Unlike the A and B Ration this one had precooked food. The “C-Ration” consisted of one pound of meat, beans and meat, meat and potato hash, meat and vegetable stew, and bread and dessert can. It usually lasted one day. Another type of ration pack was the “K-Ration which was the ration that was designed for light infantry, tank crew, and motorcycle infantry. It was usually Emergency packaged rations. Contained a dinner, supper, and breakfast meal. It was similar to the rations of today. Individual rations for breakfast, lunch, and dinner were also available. The dinner ration was a ration obviously enough for dinner. This ration contained a pork luncheon, canned American/Swiss cheese, bacon and cheese, biscuits, malted milk Tablets, caramels, sugar/salt, cigarettes, matches, gum, and a energy drink beverage powder. The Breakfast ration was a ration designed for what people would usually eat during the 1940’s in America. It contained Veal, Chopped Eggs and Ham, Biscuits, Dextrose, malted milk Tablets, dried fruit bar, oatmeal/cereal, water purification Tablets so the soldiers can drink the water that is stagnant, gum, and cigarettes. The other type of ration was the Supper Ration which provided about 2,830-3,000 calories for a single soldier. Inside the Supper ration was canned sausage, a random choice of pork-carrots or apples, beef and pork meal, biscuits, chocolate bar, tropical bar, toilet paper, cigarettes, gum and bouillon powder. Another type of ration from WWII was the “D-Ration” or the “Emergency Ration” which was a ration that contained a single high protein chocolate bar which could withstand extremely high heat.
