Before you read this post please know I could really care less about politics. During the debate last night for the most part I was more interested in the online sale at Ann Taylor Loft than what the candidates were saying. However, one topic caught my attention and I feel strongly enough about it I felt compelled to write this post. That is the topic of the wage gap between men and women. I feel this is more of a gender/society issue rather than a discriminatory issue and frankly it kind of pisses me off as a women for anyone to think I need their help:) That’s not how I was raised. Women don’t make as much as men because they don’t ask for the money that men do.
Women dominate men at every education level and the workforce has become more family friendly. The playing field is level. I am an educated women and in my career have out earned the majority of the men I know. I work hard, I’m able to balance my work with family obligation, and because I know I’m good at what I do – I ask, and have received, the money I deserve.
I know I may piss some people off with this post but ladies ASK for what you are worth and we will close the gap!
