MR, I don't have the experience you have, but I have often admired how Tom Joyce ( a well known metal smith) manages his employees. I believe that every friday, he takes them out to lunch, and then each friday afternoon they can work on thier own stuff in his beautiful forge. That might sound lavish, but I think the lesson is that there are other things besides money that could be considered a raise.
You could consider paying for classes or seminars for your long time employees, or other in-kind benifits.
Good luck, annie
