An unknown raise

My raise goes into effect today, as do all raises for folks in my group. That means our new raises show up on our paychecks two weeks from Friday. However, slow as things are bureaucratically, I have no idea what the raise is. I have not yet met with my boss and no meeting has been scheduled. There’s still time, I suppose, but who knows, I may have to wait to get my paycheck to find out how I did.
