On this week’s episode of Grease the Wheels, Uncle Jimmy gets into some of the cold hard economics of the current automotive technician labor market and talks about how to get a raise. When techs can’t afford to live in the city that they work in, you are going to have major personnel problems- you don't have to be JD Rockefeller to figure that one out. When you throw the rampant inflation into the mix, the situation becomes a lot more acute and visible. The pain is real, and wages need to go up. How do you do that? Ask for a Raise. On this week’s episode we take a look at some white collar tips and tricks to getting a raise and jerry rig them to fit the utter insanity of the automotive market. There is a fair bit of science to it, but if you time it correctly and have the skills to back it up, if your manager doesn't give you a raise, they’re asking you to leave!

Also Uncle Jimmy DayDreams about channeling Keith Moon in the exit interview while pitching some of his favorite business concepts.
