How to Calculate Your Increase 

Take your current rate of pay ($xx.xx) and calculate as follows:

2014: $xx.xx X 1.02 = $xx.xx
2015: $xx.xx X 1.02 = $xx.xx
2016: $xx.xx X 1.01 = $xx.xx 

For example if your wage is $20.00 an hour:

2014
2% increase is calculated:
$20.00 x 1.02 = $20.40
Increase = $0.40 

2015
2% increase  is calculated:
$20.40 x 1.02 = 20.81
Increase = $0.41 

2016
1% increase  is calculated:
$20.81 x 1.01 = $21.02
Increase = $0.21 

Your new pay rate is $21.08
