I wonder why they just can’t vote yes?
As a woman in a male dominated field I work just as hard if not harder than my my male co-workers. Luckily I am union and pay is set for us. Equally. However, in the salaried positions this is not the case. Women are paid less than the men. Why ? They are just as valuable and capable …. supervisors, engineers, planners, etc.
Jobs past I have been paid less as a woman as well. I performed my job duties the same if not better than the men I worked with daily.
I cannot grasp or comprehend why some men think we are less? Mainly those in power to make these decisions.
Am I less when birthing your child?
Am I less when I leave that lower paying job to come home to my non-paying job to take care of you and our family?
Am I less when you don’t have a job and I’m working for both of us?
I could go on and on. ….
The strength in character, ingenuity, problem solving, intellect, determination, sheer will power, & professionalism should not be underestimated nor under paid based on my gender.
