  1. Hello everyone,   I am a US citizen, bearing US student debt, living and working full-time in Berlin. I am fortunate to have found a very good job, at a very good company, which comes with income and covers my visa problems. I have well settled into Berlin finally, but I am dissatisfied with my financial compensation at the company.   I have a contract renewal meeting soon, and I will be asking for a raise, but this topic is not about "how to get a raise."   I know that paying an employee a higher salary means that the employer also needs to pay extra stuff in the background (insurances, social benefits, etc.)   If I were to propose a lower salary raise, but assistance in paying back my student loans (roughly 150 USD per month, maybe 200+ USD starting next year), would this something that a German employer would consider? I know it's a bit unorthodox but I was hoping this could be an interesting offer to make to my employer. If not, I'd be asking for the salary I think I deserve, which may not be as attractive an option.   I'd love your input on the matter!
