Wow. You are definitely receiving a pay cut every year. There's no "in a
sense" about it. It's a fact. If you're hoping "this won't go on forever," I
get the impression you don't have any idea whether or not it will. IMHO, a
company that freezes salaries for a whopping three years and still can't
tell its employees when the freeze will be lifted is not worth working for.
I imagine there's a mad exodus out of your company's front entrance....
Best of luck to you, hope things improve.
