Getting paid less than male counterparts?

Do you think (or know) that you're making less than males at your job or within your industry? How would you approach this topic with your boss?

I get paid less than my male coworkers. I have discussed it with my boss. He initially promised to raise me up to the same pay at the end of the year but when he did not follow through there wasn’t really anything I could do.

I got paid the same .We both had the same qualifications and however i had more experience than him. He left the company though.

I would never mention that you KNOW you make more than your male counterparts. Approach your boss about a salary increase based on your worth! Make your case and try not to be afraid to ask for what you feel is right. I know so many women (even women I previously worked with) who stuck it out making far below even the market wage because they were afraid to ask and their boss knew that so they never brought it up either.

I think it’s about being confident in what you deserve and being able to speak up about it. There were many times I approached my boss about a pay increase, not just to match then men but to keep competitive-wages with other women as well. I always want to be the one to go above and beyond... climb the latter, so I presented my ‘proof’ and information in my favor to keep my wages up.
