It will take you less than a year of putting out higher quality work and having more "respect" than any of your peers on the same level before you start asking why your title/compensation isn't higher than theirs. Either that or you'll get frustrated and self sabotage because you are waiting on someone to notice.

Lmfao @ doing what you have to do. You could be the most and the white man doing the least would still get paid more.

exactly

I'm like don't you get that you will probably already be more qualified than them when you are hired and still make less

meaning neither of you have proven sh*t at the company and they already think you are worth less

a black woman should be concerned about this and see it for what it is

even one of my white co workers noticed this when she worked at a department store and thought the black woman should sue

one of her black co workers was paid like $2 - $4 less and the black woman had way more experience than her

lol..
I don't see why y'all get so concerned over my opinion...especially when I put "just my opinion" if you don't agree...don't agree and move on...
I'm not explaining any further...I don't care enough..
I'm 100% sure she was satisfied and would have been fine with what she was making until she got a glance of what her male counterpart was making. Worry about yourself. Not about what other people are doing/making. If you're not satisfied with where you are do something about it. I hate people that are always looking over their shoulder trying to see what the next person is doing.
If that doesn't make sense then I'm sorry. *shrugs*

no it doesn't but okay

if you feel you are qualified or more qualified than someone that is making substantially more than then you should speak up

but an employer would probably love you....while you put in the work and get paid less and are okay with it

if a woman in leadership is getting short changed then that's a corporate culture thing that carries over to all women in the organization 

This needs to be out in the open, and hopefully since her role is high profile it'll make it easier for the rest of us to not need a lawyer/investigation to know whether we're getting stiffed.
