Speaking

Today I had a bad day. My leader told me this year she will promote another co-worker, I feel it’s very unfair. This girl came to this company later than me for 2 years, and she is younger than me. My leader told me last month, she will help me to strive for the promotion from HR, but she failed. She has many reasons, like half year ago, she had helped me to increase my salary. Now I’m not suitable people to promotion.
