Suggesting you're "considering part-time" is one way to shake the bridge without setting it on fire
Normally, this would be a good idea. However,

As my boss said, I already got the golden ticket. They didn't give me the raise I wanted but they did more or less say (more, in fact) that as long as I get my work done I can be anywhere I want. No clock at all (as it should be since I'm and "exempt employee". An exempt employee is like one on salary (vs. hourly) in that you don't get overtime. Here, however, the concept is exploited. They still run the hourly clock on exempts. Even with the preceding, I only earn one day of paid leave/month and that includes use for vacation, personal needs and sick leave. The USA is rather sh*tty in terms of how employees are treated with respect to time off.

Lucky for them it's not France or we'd all just go on strike.

So, as it turns out, going "part time" would just mean they pay me even less. I need an alternative form of pressure - at a time when they're a bit more desperate.
