    The only way to get a raise is if Securitas re-does the contract when it expires and adjust the pay per hour per officer. Basically the contract says that the cliant will pay X amount for Y amount of time (length of contract). Part of that billing includes the pay per hour of each officer at that site. Therefore the client having already paid X amount for securitas' services are not obligated to provide any raises, and are restricted by the contract from doing so. However, if Securitas changes the rate of pay per officer and bills the client accordingly when the current contract expires, the client must approve it, and that means the client must have the "extra" amount allocated for that part of their budget, and must agree to the price difference. Securitas can certainly do that, but if the final bill is too high there is the risk that it might get rejected and Securitas could lose that job in favor of another security company with lower rates. So Securitas tends to keep the contract at the same rate each time the contract is renewed to avoid losing it. Thats why you don't get a raise each year. Thats one of the negative parts of working for a contractor, wages rarely, if ever, increase over time.
