succumbing to peer pressure

Friday, August 10, 2007

The Washington Post finally catches up with Ms.

and publishes an article about the vast disparity not only in the number of women who negotiate their salaries compared to men but also the difference in how women who negotiate are perceived differently from men who do.

"female candidates who ask for higher salaries before receiving a formal job offer are often not hired at all...males who negotiate do not face similar negative consequences."

(from nearly one year ago)
