While much has been researched and written over the years about America's gender pay gap, I want to instead discuss how you can act if you learn that you are, in fact, being paid less than your male colleague at work.
This year, Equal Pay Day falls on April 9. The date symbolically marks the number of extra days, on average, women would have to work in 2013 to earn as much as men did in 2012. Think about that when your alarm clock rings tomorrow. The same amount!
