It's 2021 and Black women *still* make just 63 cents for every dollar a white man makes 🤨 BlackWomensEqualPayDay R29Unbothered
On Black Women's Equal Pay Day, Black women shouldn’t need to have to prove that we deserve what we’ve worked for. Equal pay should be as simple as Rihanna’s lyrics: “pay me what you owe me.”
AdvertisementI recall my parents encouraging me to go straight from undergrad to grad school (which I did), because those with advanced degrees likely make more. As true as that may be, here’s another heart wrenching stat: the higher education obtained, the larger the gap. A Black woman, like me, with an advanced degree is set to face a 35 percent wage gap, compared to a Black woman with less than a high school diploma who’s set to face a 27 percent gap. As a recent grad who has only had internships, I don’t have much guidance on what’s a good starting salary and what’s not. Searching for my first job amid a pandemic has been far from easy, and the million-dollar question on my applications asks about salary. I’m not entirely sure what to ask for because I don’t want to appear greedy, but I also don’t want to lowball myself.
Upon graduating from Syracuse with my master’s, I planned to move to NYC and begin my journalism career. I found out I was a finalist for numerous jobs and fellowships in January, and by the time interviews were conducted, COVID-19 came with a vengeance. Jobs were no longer hiring or put on “an indefinite hold.” Now, as the job industry comes off its freeze, I wonder: “
Who am I to ask for a potentially outlandish salary when company XYZ has been losing over the last five-ish months?”and“If I can’t be paid for my talents, then should they really hire me?”I’m blindly stepping into the industry with those burdens in addition to being a Black woman who likely won’t get paid what she’s worth — or anything near her counterparts. And if I needed to ask for better pay, how would I begin to properly address that with my superiors without appearing to be the “angry Black woman?” It feels almost impossible. headtopics.com

Square Keeps Its Equal Sides With Afterpay DealHeard on the Street: The market already has voted approvingly of Square's deal to acquire Afterpay. Now Square has to make sure it can stay in shape and deliver the big results the market is expecting. good luck 人类新纳粹主义已来临,控制形为进尔摧毁自由意志,强制结种疫苗,法学疑罪从无被摧毁,人人有病了世界有病了。活在恐惧中,人类。把疫苗当上帝信仰,人类堕入魔道。众生有病,计划生育杀七月成人婴几亿,众孽因果,人类无人能逃,唯行善积德可减众孽因果之罪 For as much as Square paid for afterpay, maybe they'll be on afterpay plan themselves? 🤔
How Simone Biles is empowering Black women in the workplaceThe most decorated gymnast of all time has withdrawn from several Olympic events after saying her mind and body are “out of sync.” Olympic gymnast Bridget Sloan, The Athletic staff writer Kavitha Davidson and Penn State professor Dr. Amira Rose Davis discuss Simone Biles’ decision to prioritize her mental health and what it means to Black women in particular. She is showing me how tough she is by doing what she's doing,with the whole world watching she had the cohrage to put her physical health ahead of everything else, I commend her on making the correct decision she could have gotten seriously injured, God bless her!! She also protected her physical health. You could see the twistys. Mental health is absolutely vital. It’s better to keep yourself together and at peace, than to fall apart for the world!
How misogynoir is oppressing Black women athletesThe rigidity with which Roland Garros responded to Naomi Osaka's decision is reminiscent of the scrutiny that tennis governing bodies have previously bestowed upon other prominent players, including Serena Williams. They told he she needed to follow the same rules as everyone else. That’s it. It has to be a fair competition. They can’t make exceptions for one party. misogynoirolgy, misogenealogy, misogerontology, misogynecolgy, misogymnastology, ... I just want a miso soup with ramen misoramentology Recado foi dado
