This is why I hate the minimum wage. The federal government dictates the worth of this, and many peoples time. I don't like politicians telling me how much my time is worth.
skill/education has nothing to do with wages.
It is just a way of demeaning people.
you bill out your "min wage" worker for $50 hour, guess what, $22 in wages, and another $5 for taxes and beni's.
Free Trade Doesn't Work: What Should Replace It and Why,
Based on the information offered in the op, namely a long time employee who has demonstrated dedication by his lengthy tenure but has never been offered a raise, I highly suspect he has been treated unfairly by his employer. Simply by virtue of stability, not having to train new staff to replace him, the time and effort it takes to recruit and interview potential candidates to replace him, the adjustments needed when new team members join a new work culture and that affect on morale and productivity thanks to his dedication to the company are worth something, all other things being equal.

really not enough info.....but working with what you posted, i would bring him into my office and ask him why he believes he is due a raise, and let him make his case, and as he does i will counter that argument if i have anything. if he can make a good case for the reason of being paid more, i would give him more......but i don't want to heard...."i just need more money"

THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
2. Explain to him what he needs to do to earn a raise.
3. If he does that, then he's breaking the mold - give it to him, make sure that he gets some other perks as well, and let him know what he would have to do to advance to the next step.
I'm fine with recognizing people's achievement, but they have to achieve.
