Raises are starting to make a comeback.

Reports Wednesday that Google plans to give a 10 percent pay raise to all of its 23,000 employees in January reflects a wider trend.

Big deal. Most companies have already gotten around to this cost-cutting measure. In fact, 77 percent of those surveyed said they already cut rank and file during the economic downturn.

Bank clients ripped off by pay-for-performance charade
