Not realizing that 2% doesn't even keep up with inflation and they're effectively getting a pay cut year over year.

I used to work in finance until they closed our local office and I was laid off a few years ago. I went back and looked at my salary history. I was making considerably less in real dollars at the point when I was laid off than I did 15 years prior.
