    asked/required/requested/demanded that

    Robert asked/required/requested/demanded that he be paid $100 more per week.

    Are all four verbs fine with this sentence?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: asked/required/requested/demanded that

    'Required' doesn't collocate happily with 'that he be paid'.

    The others are OK.
