Sure, it's infuriating when you find out that men make more than us doing the exact same job, but let's not forget where the problem lies.

While wages have increased for young men graduating college by about 8.1% since 2000, wages for young women have fallen 6.8% in the same time period. The discrepancy, according to the EPI's report, is likely driven by men at the very top of the wage gap distribution earning more than ever.

It is all on you, ladies. It's your obligation to only work at places that treat people well. It's also on you to take to social media, or, to say, "they treat people poorly." This is the glass ceiling to break, however, it's also on all of us to listen and withhold support and dollars from these companies.
