Your comment implies that the "employers" recognize persons doing very valuable work for the organization who are irreplaceable. That is not true. Most employers have no feelings for the prosperity of the organization, except in proprietorships. The worth of an employee is recognized, if at all, only after he or she has left.

Getting higher pay has only one ingredient: the employers fear of you leaving.

Expecting life to treat you fairly because you're a nice person is like expecting a bull not to charge you because you're a vegetarian. Good luck, Dilbert!

Catbert uses the technique to hound someone out, or guilt-trip them into accepting lower pay. Win-Win for him!!.

Actually, until you decide to leave to go somewhere they will pay you what you are worth, your manager will never accept that you are a top performer. "Facts are stubborn, but statistics are more pliable."
