The Truth Unveiled: My Husband Makes More than Me.

From my readings and hearing about others' stories, I have always known that men earn more than women for the same job/position. But somehow, I thought that this would never happen to me. Working in the field of mental health, I thought that this would ...

Workers deserve legal protection, even to question pay gaps

Moms, women, we've gotta be able to ASK. Let's make sure this bill passes--they've taken this up in the Supreme Court, from what I understand--so that you and I can have legal protection to bring it up to our employers when we're concerned about pay inequity. ...

The Lesson I Learned

I have a masters degree and 15 years teaching experience and yet many many of my male counterparts, many of whom have been teaching for less time than I, make $10,000-$15000 more than I do! When I pursued this with our personnel representative it was ...

More women in teaching = less pay for teachers

In my opinion, teaching (a profession that is 75% female) is tagged at a woman's work, therefore a low-paying profession. Compared to other professions, who require the same or less educational certification and/or experience, teaching does not pay. A ...

In high school, my best friend was hired at a grocery store and she started at $6.50 an hour, only to find out six months later that all of the men who worked at the store started at $8.00.

Paid less than men that report to me.

At my current company, all the women are paid less by at least 5% or more due to just being a woman. I was hiring a new analyst to work for me, I would be his supervisor and when I found out how much they were offering him over $100K plus bonus, I was ...

Fair Pay for equal work

Years ago I (27yrs) worked in the mall at a coin store & trained a young man (19yrs.) to become my manager. When I asked my boss/ owner why he didn't consider me for the job,

his reply was "Cause you're a woman". He said because it was dangerous for ...


Pay inequities is only where it begins...

I have been asked blatent illegal questions in interviews by major corporations. Like for example, as a single mother what if I worked an opposite shift as my daughter and I never got to see her, would I allow that to effect my job performance and how ...

I have always made less than male engineers with similar experience and education. This is wrong and it should be stopped.

I am paid less than my mail counterparts and my college has a rich and long history of this practice.

It goes both ways

As the only guy in the payroll H/R field where I work, I was recently reduced to 75% effective 7.1.11. I'm the only one in my field to be reduced like this, and the only guy in a female dominated field. You do the math, but it's official to me - discrimination ...

It doesn't pay to be a female.

I have over 5 years experience in a specialized filed of law. I've been at my firm for 3 years. I just learned my younger (4 years) male co-worker was just hired and makes $5K more than me. He also has 1 year experience. I am told every year they don't ...

In 1953 my mother got to cope with being a single mother with three small sons as she divorced our father for being caught by the Air Police giving a kid a blow job in the back of his car on base. So she went from being an officer's wife with a maid to ...

I need more income on my job as much as the male does.

Males Assumed More Valuable!

It's all in a Day's work!
