Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being uniquely valuable to the company, yet not paid for that: I am more qualified than others taking on their work and yet I receive no promotion or even acknowledgment of my bilingual skills.
I was not hired as a translator, nor, was Spanish a requirement for my employment, so, the fact that I was simply a plus. Well it has turned out to be more of a plus for my company because since I’ve been here going on 6 years, all of the Spanish calls and emails have been sent to me. I am the only person in my company that is bi-lingual both written and spoken. However, I have never been paid a differential.
