Disturbing, but not shocking

Becki pointed out an interesting article this week in her blog. Check out this finding in Time that shows women are still not making as much cash-ola as men. They basically say that even before your diploma is in hand and you’re being shoved in front of photographers at graduation, your pay (if you’re a woman) will be less then Jack’s standing behind you. So if you want to break even with you male counterparts, you have to be twice as ambitious. That’s so incredibly motivating for women.

 I can’t say that I’m really surprised though and have always known that I’d have to “prove myself” to other people in order to be successful. As long as women are armed with this knowledge, I don’t think it’s a big issue because when it comes down to it, a woman can be just a voracious as a man if not more so, simply by nature. So go get ’em ladies and don’t let this news discourage, let it motivate.
