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?

At my old job we were not allowed to talk to other people about our income. I’m sorry to hear you are dealing with his. 😩

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 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.
