He got a $5,000 raise. It wasn’t that complicated.

Keep in mind, though, that both of your examples here are male. It’s been shown over and over that employers usually react positively to male employees asking for a raise, and negatively to female employees asking for a raise. A female in the situations described would be more likely to be denied the raise, or lose the job / have the job offer withdrawn than a male (please not that is “more likely” not “guaranteed to”. Don’t argue that it doesn’t happen every time. I know it doesn’t. But it happens much more often than for males, which makes female employees much more reluctant to ask in the first place, thus contributing to the wage gap.)
