I have been working in this fashion company for one and a half years. They are giving me so much work and they commend my efforts but I feel like my salary is not enough. My boss and I make a good team. I don't want to make it awkward when I am raising my concern...

When asking for a salary increase, it's important to be direct and clear about what you're asking for. You can start by saying something like, "I appreciate all the opportunities I've had to grow at this company. I feel like I'm doing valuable work and I'd like to be compensated accordingly." If your boss seems hesitant, you can try asking for a specific amount or range that you're looking for. Ultimately, it's important to be confident in your request and be prepared to negotiate if necessary.
