Thank you for the reply Alan, but I'd like to clarify a little.
I'm not a leader. That's my concern. I'm not a manger of anyone except myself.
Referencing the Exempt Jobs list for the FLSA, my duties do not fall within executive, administrative, creative or computer professional.
I work an inside sales job, and in 2013 my gross pay after taxes barely broke 17k.
(Factoring in taxes bumps this to a total of $19,108.67)
My last issue, is that I am not the only one in this same position. There are at least a dozen other employees within the company with my exact role and purpose, whom are all paid the same way.
Now that I think about it, about half of the entire company (of roughly ~250 employees) are all salaried in various positions.
Does that change anything legally, or am I just being ungrateful?
Yes, it is possible that it changes things. No, you are not being ungrateful. Consult with an attorney who specializes in employment law issues.
