More than my mom

I remember getting my first job in an assembly plant. I was 20 and had absolutely no experience. I came home and found out my starting pay was 3 times as much as my mom's who had been working as a Restaurant manager my whole life. I started dating a young lady that worked there, too. When we married 2 years later I found out that even though she had more seniority she made less than me.

We have 2 daughters and I sure would like to see them get equal pay for equal work.
