Do you know your value? My 93-year old mother sheds light on how to know your worth. #knowyourworth, thank you mom for being such a great role model – fewau.com
Recently Judith Beck, Founder of Financial Executive Women (FEW) asked her 93 year old mother to shed some light on what the work environment was like when she was working in terms of salary. As a background her father lost his job in his late 40’s and couldn’t find another job so her mother went to work as they were raising six kids. She worked in sales demonstrating products at home shows and fairs and found out that she was getting substantially lower pay than the men, even though she sold more product than anyone else. When she asked her boss for a raise, he replied I wondered how long it would take you to ask.
