One tactic is to put out a negotiating feeler to test the waters. Ask for
something small to test.

Your time and costs go up if you have to travel to work every day instead
of occaisionally. Managers understand about time and costs. So that a
safe start. You could work out what the increase is to you using your
current pay for hours worked as guidance. Ir is reasonable enough to get
at least this increase - and perhaps rounded up if you were due for small
increase soon anyway. It probably would not be a heck of a big cost for
them to give you an increase for this and who knows they might even admire
Ãour accounting type bottom line thinking.

If they are listen and try to be flexible then you know they genuinely want
you there. (But like any 'good manager' they are just trying to get you
as cheap as they can get you!) In this case, getting small increases often
is probably an easier strategy for getting to where you want to be, than
aiming for big increases less often. You could focus on some achievement
milestones and raise the subject of another small raise with your
achievements as your business case, whenever you achieve one.

Apologies if I am repeating - not sure that I have got the whole thread.
