Hi all. So, crowdsourcing some help bc normal payroll aggregators have a hard time processing my job description. I would like to hear if my ask is insane (since it's a gigantic raise), or if it makes sense. I am going to ask for $25/hour, at 60 hours a week (which is kind of inevitable on the timeline they have), which leads me to about 78,000. Problem is I took a bit of an hourly pay cut when I started, being promised a 45 hr week. (It would have been a raise if it was 45 hours, but it's 60 and at a sprint). Did the math and got furious realizing I make about 18/hour bc of the hours I work, and now the correction is due. Does this seem justified? I love the company, they are doing great financially, all my employees are paid super well, but I'm just embarrassed to ask for so much money and have heard "don't think about it hourly" so many times I don't know which way is right. Job description: Exec chef for manufacturing bakery, 50 employee, 24-7 operation. Also manage/develop 2 retail cafe, with seasonal menu development and savory programs, btw 6-10 thousand in sales daily for the cafes, but our main bit is wholesale.

Sorry this is so long, wanted to give a good picture. Thanks for any comments!
