1 in 12 is ~ 8% which is not that big a number.
So is this what you’d think if your boss decided to give you an 8% reduction in salary?

That caught my eye because 32 years ago I worked for a company that was in financial trouble. They actually DID cut everyone’s pay by EIGHT percent. In my case this came immediately after I had just gotten a seven percent merit increase. As I recall I had one paycheck with my raise on it and then got cut back to slightly LESS than my old rate. We did not appreciate it! They made an error though, they promised in writing that this was temporary and everyone would be repaid in the future for wages lost during the cut. The feds ruled that this made it a forced loan from the employees to the company and so constituted extortion and they had to immediately restore everyone to their former pay level. By that time I was working for another company so I never got my money back.
