I am not sure the following sentence after yet.

You have been working hard and providing measurably positive results for your company, yet your pay isn't what it should be or you keep getting skipped over for a promotion or new opportunities to grow.

Would you please let me know more English?

  • @snailboat Hi i'm not sure why are you editing my question title, would you let me know? Is there any something wrong point? From "what is this having a meaning" to "what does this sentence mean?" – Carter Oct 8 '14 at 2:35

    "what is this having a meaning" is ungrammatical. I guessed that what you meant to say is "What does this sentence mean?" If I was mistaken, please feel free to roll back my change and edit your question. – snailcar Oct 8 '14 at 2:36
  • Oh I got it. Your suggestion is correct. – Carter Oct 8 '14 at 2:40
  • If I have to use "what is this having a meaning", what should I edit to do in this sentence? – Carter Oct 8 '14 at 2:47
  • ... yet your pay isn't what it should be because you keep getting skipped over for promotions and new opportunities to grow. – Jim Oct 8 '14 at 5:25

This is how you read it by breaking the sentence into parts and extracting the complex meaning from it: You have been working hard and providing measurably positive results for your company,

yet

your pay isn't what it should be

or

you keep getting skipped over for a [promotion or new opportunities] to grow.

Means: you are working hard and fetching results as well

but, your pay is much less than what you should get

because you are not considered for a promotion or new opportunity to grow.

After "yet" your sentence says: Still, your pay isn't what it should be. (Give a pause here) and then try to understand the second part which says: You keep getting skipped over for a promotion or new opportunities to grow (i.e. 'you are not being promoted' to put it in the easiest words)
