What was funny about it was after I left they wound up hiring
two people to replace me and paid both of them more than I had been

Me too. It wasn't a tech writing position -- just working in a small sewing factory before most sewing jobs were sent overseas. (I was impacted by offshoring 20 years ago!) Anyway, I was asking for a miniscule raise, and told that "maybe later" I could get it. Nobody could finish the product anywhere near the speed that I could (I did 400 - 600 per day; the closest "competitor" could do 50 - 75 a day). The business went bankrupt 3 months later.

I went back to college... :)
